Hungary’s FM reiterates the country’s position on migration during a debate at the European Parliament

Hungary’s foreign minister has reiterated the country’s position on migration during a debate at the European Parliament.

Peter Szijjártó, minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said it became clear that Brussels and the United Nations want illegal migrants to come to Europe.

He added that according to a planned resolution, migration will be presented as a human right and its positive effects will be emphasized, which goes against the interests of the Hungarian people.

“We continue to resolutely reject migration becoming recognized as a human right or a positive trend,” he said.

Migration is not the right response to challenges in the labor market either, he added. Hungary will resolve demographic and labor market challenges with the help of Hungarian people and Hungarian families, he stressed.

“We want more Hungarian children and more Hungarian families instead of more migrants in Hungary. We love our country and will not hand it over to others,” he said.

“No matter how many times George Soros goes to Brussels and the issue of illegal migration is put on the agenda; no matter how many allies Soros has in Brussels, we will not back down. Illegal migrants will not come here,” he added.
