According to Chief Security Advisor to the Prime Minister György Bakondi, there is no question of migration coming to a stop, because although the number of people arriving in Europe from war zones in Syria and Iraq is decreasing, more are arriving from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Speaking on Hungarian M1 television’s Thursday morning current affairs program, Mr. Bakondi said: People coming from Syria and Iraq are now increasingly stopping in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan and preparing to return home in view of the fact that they will eventually have the opportunity to do so thanks to the military operations.
He pointed out that those who are arriving from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sub-Saharan Africa are not fleeing war, but are setting out for Europe in the hope of a better life because of economic problems in their homeland.
Regardless of the onset of winter, movement is being seen along the migration routes in the direction of Spain from Algeria and Morocco, towards Italy from Tunisia and Libya, and from Turkey to the Greek islands and towards Romania via the Black Sea, he said.
On Kossuth Radio’s “180 minutes” program this morning, Mr. Bakondi was asked with relation to the fact that on 16 November the session of the European Parliament authorised the negotiation mandate on the planned reform of the Dublin Agreement previously adopted by the EP’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE). “Their aim is to enable the immigration policy goals set down in the ‘Soros Plan’ to appear in European Union law and become mandatory for every EU member state”, the Chief Security Advisor said.
The Government rejects uncontrolled immigration with no upper threshold, he stressed.
