This year alone, 28,000 migrants arrived at Hungary’s borders and only 5,000 filed for refugee status, the daily said.

Lázár said Hungary would not quit the European Union even if the “no” vote wins at the Oct 2 referendum about EU migrant quotas and “if Brussels still wants to force a quota on Hungary”.
