PM Orbán said the United Nations is an asset, “but we mustn’t allow it to formulate principles that go against Hungary’s interests… And the package currently being prepared does go against Hungarian interests"
An “alliance of common sense” is in the making, said Prime Minister Orbán, countries that ask where it would lead if we accept the right to migration as a fundamental human right and allow the UN to oversee international migration. Hungary will not participate in anything that runs counter to its security interests.
Péter Szijjártó, minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said the government has instructed him to review the first draft of the package, to be published on February 5th, and start the procedure to quit the talks if the document is “as pro-migration” as the 2016 declaration
"Our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone," the US ambassador to the UN said. "We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country"
