Drawing on the remarks of other prominent political figures at this weekend’s Budapest Summit on Migration, including former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán concluded that migration and border protection competences should be returned to the EU’s member states and delegated to an independent council comprised of EU interior ministers.
“I listen to everyone – especially trade unions: I listen to their views, I respect freedom of opinion, and I always take into consideration the arguments which are expressed. In this case I think that the objections put forward carried far less weight than the legislative amendment itself. This is a good law, which will be good for workers,” the prime minister said
"Today, the Hungarian nation toasts you with gratitude, not forgetting the committed support that Hungary received from you during the course of our Euro-Atlantic integration," Prime Minister Viktor Orbán wrote to former French President Jacques Chirac
Hungary’s stance on immigration has been labeled one of the “destroyers of Europe”, however these sentiments couldn’t be further from the truth. Hungary’s border policy does in fact protect European freedom.
In 2015, a migratory wave of unforeseen proportions reached the borders of Europe. One and a half million people have crossed Schengen borders illegally. The cultural and economic integration of the masses of newcomers has made Europe face an unsolvable task, and uncontrolled border-crossings have significantly increased the danger of terror.
“Brussels must listen to the voice of the people. This is the biggest takeaway from yesterday’s decision,” said Prime Minister Viktor Orbán commenting on the result of Thursday’s referendum in which voters in the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union.
„Brüssel muss auf die Stimme des Volkes hören. Das ist die größte Lektion aus der gestrigen Entscheidung“, sagte Ministerpräsident Viktor Orbán, als er das Ergebnis des Referendums am Donnerstag kommentierte, im Zuge dessen die Wahlberechtigten im Vereinigten Königreich für den Austritt aus der Europäischen Union stimmten.
Following his meeting with the “Sunni Pope,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán talked about Europe’s catastrophic interventions in the Islamic world, the need for a stable Egypt and a re-stabilized Libya in his regular radio interview this week. He also touched upon the Brexit referendum and the dangers of the evolving democratic deficit in today’s European Union.
