The Foreign Minister has stressed that the security of the European people is paramount.

Commenting on the recent stabbings in Lyon, Péter Szijjártó stressed that migration must be kept outside of Europe’s borders.

“We sympathize with our French friends in these hours of grief and pain, and trust that this despicable attack does not claim any more victims,” Minister Szijjártó said in a statement wishing the injured a full recovery.

“Hungary’s position is clear: life in Europe must not be allowed to develop such that we fear for our lives when standing at a bus stop, in street market or at concert because some people living in Europe want to destroy us,” he said.

An attacker stabbed to death a 19 year-old man and injured nine others in a Lyon suburb on Saturday. French channel BFM reported that the attacker was an Afghan national.
