In a press conference held at Hungary’s southern border fence, Prime Minister Orbán’s Chief Security Advisor György Bakondi confirmed that the number of illegal border-crossing attempts have increased dramatically around border sections not protected with a border fence, even though increased police and military presence is supported by high-end heat cameras, drones and radar technology.
György Bakondi said that once the Regulation on the European Border and Coast Guard is enforced with the aim of better protecting the EU’s external borders, Frontex will be enlarged over several years to 10,000 personnel.
György Bakondi stressed that if further tens and hundreds of thousands set out from Turkey, ever more people will be waiting at one European border section or another in order to move further towards the interior of the continent.
György Bakondi said one such issue is that von der Leyen is on the position that the EU should reinforce its external borders, while another common point is that she also believes that help must be delivered to where it is needed instead of importing the problems.
