PM Orbán: NATO focus on migration is a Central European success

This is the first time, Prime Minister Orbán said, that NATO recognized mass migration coming from the south as a security challenge.

Following the second day of NATO’s 70th anniversary summit in London, Prime Minister Orbán took to his Facebook page to comment on the outcome of the event in a short video statement.

“The significance of the summit, where we also celebrated the 70th anniversary of the founding of NATO,” the Hungarian prime minister said, “lies in that this is the first time NATO recognized mass migration coming from the south as a security challenge.”

Calling this shift in focus a “great development” and a “serious step forward,” Prime Minister Orbán commended Hungary’s foreign minister and the foreign ministry for their relentless work in achieving the recognition of mass immigration as a security threat.

“We can also look at this as a Central European success,” the PM concluded, adding that we, Central Europeans, are the ones who have always urged NATO to turn its attention to migration and the terrorist threat that comes with it.
