Migrants then flooded the platforms hoping to get onto trains heading for Western Europe.

Hungary’s national police force said in a statement that it had “fully fulfilled” its obligation at Budapest’s railway stations “despite the unprecedented migration pressure”.

The statement on Thursday said that illegal migration had caused “no major problems in Hungary’s rail traffic”. Police said the large number of migrants at the railway stations had not resulted in any personal injuries or any damage to the stations.

The statement said the police force would “continue to tackle” illegal migration “moderately, taking into account every circumstance, proportionately, legally and professionally.” The police will continue to check trains and will apply the Schengen rules against illegal migrants, the statement said.

    Before giving a helping hand to the migrants tell them in a clear language they
    arrived in Hungary which belongs to a civilized world, consequently, they first of
    all have to clean the railway station .

    Have you forgotten the displacement of Hungarians after ww1? Or 1956 when 200 000 Hungarians left the country and was welcomed in as refugees all over Europe, despite your cultural differences (no we don’t understand your language). The brutal treatment of these refugees by the police as shown on the news or Orban’s message about Hungary’s stance (“This is not a European problem”) really sends a very sad message about Hungary and its concept about “solidarity”.
