Hungary supports assisting those who are truly eligble for asylum

The pressure from illegal migration is still not receding, and in fact a significant increase is being observed along both the Mediterranean migrating route and from Morocco to Spain

The chief security advisor to the Prime Minister has said that Hungary supports assisting those who are in need of asylum.

"Hungary supports all humane issues and action taken in solidarity that concerns assisting those who are truly eligible for asylum," György Bakondi said.

“Supporting illegal migration and the opening of borders is not equal to solidarity. he said. The advisor noted that according to a UN survey only three out of every ten migrants are eligible for political asylum, the majority are economic immigrants.

A major critic of Hungary, Martin Schultz recently highlighted that Germany pays the most money into the joint EU budget, while the main beneficiaries include Poland and Hungary, two countries that have “refused solidarity with regard to the refugee issue”.

Bakondi pointed out that Hungary is acting in solidarity with countries that are protecting themselves against illegal mass migration. “We are sending police officers and providing assistance to countries that are the source of migration," he explained.

The advisor also said that pressure from illegal migration is still not receding, and in fact a significant increase is being observed along both the Mediterranean migration route and from Morocco to Spain.
