Europe must restore order and the fear people are experiencing must be extinguished, according to Péter Szijjártó, minister of Foreign Affairs & Trade.
“It is unacceptable that fear has instilled itself into the everyday lives of the people of Europe, and for this reason we must restore legal order; nothing can be more important than the safety of the European people," the minister said.
In a statement concerning the events of recent days, the minister stressed that all is being done to protect the Hungarian people.
“No no-go zones have evolved here; the fence, the policing of the border and the stricter legislation all serve to assure the safety of the Hungarian people," he said.
“It is clear to everyone that ‘the immigration policy Brussels has followed so far is a total failure’ and that immediate changes are required. Chaos must give place to order and fear must be replaced by a feeling of security," he continued.
The statement also said that the family of the Hungarian victim of Friday’s attack in Munich had indicated that they wish to bury their son in Hungary and that the ministry is providing the family with the required financial support and has undertaken the costs of repatriation.
Germany has suffered four serious attacks during the past week, and in these difficult times we once again assure the German people of our support and of the fact that Hungary is standing by Germany “in these hours of grief”.
According to the ministry, all this reinforces the Hungarian government in its existing standpoint according to which “Europe’s borders must be protected, the terror and violence must be kept outside the continent and we must put a stop to illegal immigration”.
