Hungary's Chief Security Advisor says population numbers have reached their limits in EU Member States where there are migrants in large numbers

The EU may offer African countries financial grants in exchange for preventing the progress of migrants, György Bakondi said

Hungary's chief security advisor has said that population numbers have reached their limits in EU Member States where there are migrants in large numbers.

György Bakondi, Chief Security Advisor to the Prime Minister, highlighted that EU populations have reached their limits of tolerance when it comes to migrants.

Bakondi added that this has been emphasized by the fact that the majority of Austrians support the closure of the Brenner Pass and the Mediterranean route.

He said that France, Italy, Germany and the European Union itself are engaged in talks with the issuer countries and the transit countries concerned. The essence of the talks is that the EU may offer African countries financial grants in exchange for preventing the progress of migrants.

Bakondi pointed out that the setting up of so-called hotspots is being mentioned in European politics more often recenty. These hotspots would serve to screen applicants wishing to enter Europe, and will only allow those into the EU who are genuinely eligible for asylum.
