FM: If the UN does not give up its “completely biased” stance on migration, the danger to Europe will be “extremely serious”

Minister Szijjártó highlighted that the Islamic State terrorist organization had adopted a new strategy of returning its mercenaries to the countries they came from

Hungary’s foreign minister has told the UN Human Rights Council and Conference on Disarmament that if the UN does not give up its “completely biased” stance on migration, the danger to Europe in the coming months will be “extremely serious”.

Speaking in Geneva, Peter Szijjártó highlighted that the Islamic State terrorist organization had adopted a new strategy of returning its mercenaries to the countries they came from. Around 5,000 are EU citizens, he noted, adding that the interception of IS members in Bosnia and Macedonia over the past weeks was evidence of the new IS strategy.

The minister said that given that the Balkans is their preferred route back, countries of the Western Balkans and central Europe must staunchly protect their borders.

Minister Szijjártó called on the United Nations to abandon its policy of supporting migration, otherwise IS terrorists smuggling weapons capable of massive destruction could ride a wave of migration to Europe. The minister also urged the disarmament conference to work towards its goals speedily so that arms do not get into the hands of terrorists.
