The foreign minister has said that the international community, including the United Nations and the European Union, should work on settling refugees back home, not promoting migration.

During his speech at the United Nations debate on accountability for Syrian war crimes, Péter Szíjjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said that in recent years the situation East of Europe has destabilized and as a result Europe has been flooded with millions of migrants, whose movement has been encouraged by the migration policy of the leaders in Brussels.

Minister Szíjjártó said that due to the actions of the international military coalition led by the United States the Jihadist terrorist organization styling itself the Islamic State has lost 98 percent of its territories occupied in 2014 in Syria and Iraq, so it was time to begin organizing the return of these refugees to their homes, not encourage further migration.

Minister Szíjjártó also met Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Andrew Gilmour.
