Szabolcs Takács has said the European Union’s future migration policy should be decided by its citizens in the upcoming European parliamentary elections.
The state secretary for EU affairs at the Prime Minister’s Office said Hungary has made it clear many times that it does not want to become a country of immigrants.
Takács said that in the ballot in May, voters will get to have their say on whether “pro-migration forces should become stronger or weaker”.
The Hungarian government faces “attacks” not only from its own opposition, but also from pro-migration countries and politicians across Europe for its firm stance on rejecting migration, Takács said.
The secretary pointed out that it was not by accident that Dutch Green MEP Judith Sargentini was also scheduled to participate in a demonstration against the Hungarian government organized by the Hungarian opposition in Brussels on Tuesday afternoon.
