PM Orbán meets ACN Director to discuss migrant crisis

PM Orbán said the best method of Christian aid is to do everything possible for peace on the ground, in conflict-ridden regions. Those who come to Europe will never return

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Marc Fromager, National Director of “Aid to the Church in Need” (ACN) in France, met in the Carmelite Monastery on Wednesday to talk about the persecution of Christians and the protection of Europe’s traditional values.

According to MTI, the aid organization has had several joint projects with Hungary, including the reconstruction of the Christian small town Tellskuf in Iraq in 2017.

PM Orbán and Fromager agreed that, together with migrants, the West’s immigration policy also imports the problems of the Middle East. For instance, France already has “lost territories” where instead of the State, Salafist preachers lay down the law, they highlighted.

Fromager agreed with PM Orbán that the best method of Christian aid is to do everything possible for peace on the ground, in conflict-ridden regions. Those who flee from war situations to camps located near the borders have a chance to go back home; however, those who come to Europe will never return.

PM Orbán and Fromager also exchanged views on Europe’s demographic crisis, and concluded that there are two solutions to managing it. Either we encourage births by placing the interests of families in the focus of politics, or we encourage ever further flows of migration. Today Western Europe only resorts to the latter solution, but by doing so they jeopardize the continent’s future, the parties highlighted at the meeting.
