Hungary’s foreign minister has pointed out that Brussels and the United Nations clearly share the same goal of legalizing illegal migration.
Following a meeting of European Union foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday, Péter Szijjártó highlighted that illegal migrants have arrived in Europe in an organized way ever since 2015.
Minister Szijjártó said the past three years saw a constant fight between those who want to stop and those who want to organize migration. The Hungarian government’s position has been consistent ever since the beginning: migration involves dangers and should be stopped.
The minister said the preparatory talks for the UN global migration compact represented a betrayal of Europeans, adding that the final version of the document fails to represent the interests of Europeans.
Minister Szijjártó said Hungary wants to preserve an EU where Christmas remains Christmas, with a nativity scene and a Christmas tree. Europe must insist on its traditions and heritage and resist all attempts to irrevocably change the ethnic mix of the European Union, he added.
Hungary insists that Europe is faced by a migration issue rather than a refugee issue, and migration processes must be stopped, he said.
Hungary views illegal migrants as illegal migrants and not as refugees, and the Hungarian government will vote against the UN migration compact in New York, he concluded.
