Hungary’s foreign minister has said that changes are needed in Brussels.
Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, highlighted that for more than three years the Hungarian government has been compelled to listen to the argument in Brussels that the flow of migrants cannot be stopped, and that we must think about ways to distribute illegal immigrants.
At its southern border Hungary has proved that the flow of illegal immigration can be stopped on land. Additionally, Italy and Australia have proved that migration can also be stopped at sea.
The minister said that Australia has reduced the number of illegal immigrants reaching its shores to zero. He also pointed out that illegal immigration must now be stopped in the Mediterranean as well.
Regarding his meeting with his Italian counterpart Enzo Moavero Milanesi last week, Minister Szijjártó said the Hungarian and Italian governments agree that the policy which invites illegal immigrants to Europe must be stopped in the European Union.
The minister also said in answer to a question that if requested by Italy, Hungary is ready to help with the renovation and reconstruction works following the collapse of the Genoa motorway bridge with its technical expertise and experience.
