Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said Hungary is opposed to terrorism, so it is also opposed to migration.
“Those who support migration also support terrorism,” PM Orbán said ahead of a two-day European Union summit in Brussels. The prime minister said he hoped decision-makers in Brussels would also “realize that there is a clear connection between terrorist acts and migration”. The EU, he said, wanted member states to give more money for migration-related policy and to Ukraine, but Hungary refused to give money to migrants. Neither would it give money to Ukraine unless the request was well-founded, he said, adding that the current proposals lacked professional or political supporting arguments. “It won’t work giving more money; we will refuse this,” he said. Asked about the war in Ukraine, Orbán said Hungary had a peace plan and would keep all communication channels open with Russia in the hope that it would be accepted. Hungary, he added, was the only country that stood for peace, which was “in the interest of all Europeans”.
