Hungary's Chief Security Advisor says the publication of the first draft of the UN’s migration package is cause for concern

György Bakondi said the UN's package is cause for concern because Hungary does not want to be part of a treaty that states that migration is a fundamental human right and everyone is free to choose where they want to settle

Hungary's Chief Security Advisor has said that the publication of the first draft of the UN’s migration package is cause for concern.

György Bakondi pointed out that the first draft was developed by two ambassadors and will set down guidelines for the organization’s stance on migration.

Bakondi said this is cause for concern because Hungary does not want to be part of a treaty that states that migration is a fundamental human right and everyone is free to choose where they want to settle.

He said the United Nations is preparing to support a package that will allow migration as a fundamental human right  “This is at odds with the interests of both Hungary and Europe," he said.

Bakondi also said that Hungary's foreign minister has been authorized to begin preparations for a possible exit from the negotiations, but that the Cabinet Office will have the final say on the matter.

Meanwhile, the minister of state for Government Communication said the main goal is to stop the migration process, not to support it, and if the draft of the UN’s migration package does not take a turn in this direction “Hungary will have no place” in the document’s development process.

Bence Tuzson said the UN's document was “a quite complex proposal, but practically speaking is a repetition of the Soros plan”, and it is both the moral and political duty of the Hungarian administration to ensure that the results of the National Consultation held on the subject are enforced.
