Hungary has won time at the end of the European Union summit in Brussels, where migration was a topic on the agenda, István Hollik, the spokesman for the ruling Fidesz alliance with the Christian Democrats said on Saturday. But the political battle is still ongoing, he added.
Prime Minister Orbán and the other Visegrad Group leaders managed to prevent the compulsory introduction of migrant quotas, the spokesman said at a press conference.
Hungary’s position on stopping migration remains the same, he said, adding that the borders of Europe need to be protected.
People living illegally in Europe should not be relocated within the bloc but sent home, he said.
Hollik said no one should lose sight of the fact that millions of economic migrants want to reach Europe.
“The Soros network and Brussels bureaucrats still want migration to be a fundamental right,” he said, referring to US billionaire George Soros.
Next year’s European parliamentary elections are all the more important since they will give European people a chance to say whether Brussels’ policy on migration is good or not.
