International Spokesman: It's clear that political issues relating to migration permeate every area of life

“The make-up of the European Parliament will change,” Zoltán Kovács declared, adding that he hopes an anti-immigration majority is established that will help preserve Europe’s original identity and culture

The State Secretary for International Communications and Relations has highlighted that migration is a key issue in every European country, and that during the past three years it has become clear that political issues relating to migration permeate every area of life.

During an interview on Kossuth Radio, Zoltán Kovács recalled the statements made at Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s press conference on Thursday, highlighting that immigration and the arrival of illegal migrants will be the determining issue in Europe over the next two decades.

“Europe must find its way back to its roots because this is how the challenge facing the continent as a result of migration can be responded to most effectively, and the questions concerning the future of Europe can also be explained best from this original approach and Europe’s relationship with Christian culture,” the State Secretary explained. “The dividing line that currently exists within the European People’s Party indicates which member parties have in fact become liberal,” he added.

Kovács pointed out that in relation to illegal migration, Central European countries, Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, have embraced a school of thought from which they have developed independent approaches that are on a par with those of Western Europe also with relation to many other European issues. He added that in a certain sense, Austria, Italy and Bavaria are also part of this group, where an extremely strong Central European identity has developed, which will play an extremely important role.

“The make-up of the European Parliament (EP) will change,” he declared, adding that he hopes an anti-immigration majority is established that will help preserve Europe’s original identity and culture.
