Budapest, December 15 (MTI) – The ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats asked Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to represent the position of fully rejecting the European Union quota for the mandatory settlement of migrants at Thursday’s EU summit.

If there is an attempt to “forcefully” implement the mandatory quotas, the ruling parties asked Orbán to veto this at the summit, Fidesz communications director Balázs Hidvéghi told a press conference held jointly with Fidesz spokesman János Halász.

“There is still a large pressure on Hungary from the EU to give up its position and accept the plan for mandatory settlement,” Hidvéghi said. There are some “serious signs” showing that “pro-migrant forces” want to push the mandatory quotas through the EU decision-making process, he added.
