State Secretary Levente Magyar said the current situation in Afghanistan indicates that the West “hasn’t learned anything”, and after Libya, Iraq and Syria, it will leave behind “ruin, hundreds of thousands of casualties, political chaos, a reign of terror by extremists and millions of emigrants in Afghanistan, too".
The Hungarian government, however, will not let the Hungarian people be made to “pay the price for the dilettantism of the superpowers”, Magyar said. Hungary refuses to take in the wave of migrants that will be fleeing the chaos in Afghanistan. He said Turkey was building a 300km wall along its border with Iran “because it knows that there will soon be a huge wave of migrants passing through it on their way to Europe”. This threat also concerns Hungary, Magyar said, adding, however, that the government would be capable of countering it as it had done with past migration waves.
