Hungary’s Foreign Minister names reason for EU’s wrong attitude to migration

21.10.2023, Budapest.

Hungary’s Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó urged to strengthen security in countries where migrants and refugees come from, instead of encouraging border crossings, the press service of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry informed on November 21.

Szijjártó said what Europe should do instead of encouraging uncontrolled migration. He is convinced: if the EU member states are concerned about strengthening the security and social status of the population of the countries, from where people flee to Europe, the problem of many thousands of waves of foreigners would not be a problem.

And the reason lies in the fact that European politicians consider the issue of migration from the point of view of human rights, not security. This concept needs to be reconsidered to change the situation, argues Szijjártó.

The Hungarian politician said that his country is actively engaged in helping the countries where migrants come from. These are African countries. In particular, the Hungarian government has sent several hundred military personnel to Chad.

The Hungarian Parliament is considering a new bill on the situation of immigrants inside the country. The country’s Interior Ministry has decided to revise and tighten the existing law to expel migrants who violate the rules.
