Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said Poland and the Baltic States are having to contend with forced and organized migration from the East.
According to MTI, the minister, at a meeting in Estonia with the foreign ministers of the countries on the eastern wing of NATO, said mass illegal migration was the single item on the meeting’s agenda. Minister Szijjártó said migration in itself posed a threat to the region, but this was compounded by the policies of “international organizations that have lost their common sense completely”. Referring to the “anti-fence standpoint” of Brussels last week, he said, “here’s another gem: Yesterday, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees dared to say that Latvia, which is having to mobilize all its resources to protect its borders, should change its attitude and let migrants in,” he said. “So we should let them in; let them into the territory of the European Union and then give them loads of social support,” he added.
The minister said those same migrants injured Polish border guards at the weekend. The minister added that “international bureaucrats living off European taxpayers’ money” were encouraging migrants who were “trashing our rules, laws and standards of conduct” and wanted to “aggressively impose their own way of life on us”.
