Hungary will not take in a single migrant, says foreign minister

"Hungary will keep on fighting and the people will decide on April 8th whether Hungary will continue to have an anti-immigration government or will have a pro-immigration government," the foreign minister said

Hungary’s foreign minister has said that no matter how much pressure the UN Human Rights Committee exerts on the country, we will not take in a single migrant.

Péter Szijjártó, minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said the fact that the UN Human Rights Committee adopted “a grossly biased declaration against Hungary” amounts to an attempt at open intervention in Hungarian internal affairs in the finish of the election campaign.

Regarding the organization’s report, he said it is as if it had been written, from start to finish, by George Soros. “It bears an uncanny resemblance to the Soros plan”.

The minister added that it is absurd that the Committee wants us to accept prohibited border-crossing and border violation as fundamental human rights and to put up and to provide for people who arrived in Hungary by crossing the border illegally, thereby breaching Hungarian sovereignty.

He added that the UN Human Rights Committee wants “us to accept that we must provide for people arriving in our country illegally” the same way as we provide for Hungarian taxpayers.

“No matter how much pressure the UN Human Rights Committee exerts on us, we will not take a single migrant in,” he stressed.

He added that the fence will remain in place, as will our stringent immigration policy. “Illegal immigrants cannot come to Hungary,” and also in the future “we will treat” border violation as one of the gravest possible criminal offences committed against the country’s sovereignty, and “will sanction it accordingly,” he stated.

The minister said Hungary will keep on fighting and the people will decide on April 8th whether Hungary will continue to have an anti-immigration government or will have a pro-immigration government.
