Hungarian government allocates 51 billion HUF for border protection measures up until the end of 2017

The funds are to ensure that Hungary remains one of the safest countries in Europe and the World, and to protect the country from illegal immigrants

The Hungarian government has allocated 51 billion HUF to the ministry of Interior and the ministry of Defence for the protection of the borders up until the end of the year.

János Lázár, the minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office, said the funds are to ensure that Hungary remains one of the safest countries in Europe and the World, and to protect the country from illegal immigrants.

Lázár said that the government takes the stance that while they respect that there are large Western-European countries which are immigrant countries, they cannot accept that they should want to also change Central-European countries "which are not immigrant countries as yet”.

He took the view that the European Commission is "stealthily” organizing resettlement on an ongoing basis and it should be taken seriously.
