Strache seeks distance from NF anti-semitism
Freedom Party (FPÖ) leader HC Strache sought today to distance himself from a developing row over remarks made by French far-right National Front founder, Jean-Marie Le Pen.
After the outcry of anti-Semitic statements made by the National Front founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache made it clear in an interview with radio station OE1 that "Such a thing has no place in the political debate."
Strache is seeking to form a pan-European parliamentary alliance with several right-wing parties, including the French National Front under the leadership of Le Pen's daughter, Marine Le Pen. The remarks led to a dispute between Le Pen and his daughter, thereby complicating efforts to form the alliance.
