Budapest, October 5 (MTI) – The opinion of 3.3 million Hungarian voters is more important that the position of Sweden’s justice minister, Péter Szijjártó, the Hungarian foreign minister, told MTI on Wednesday.
Morgan Johansson, the Swedish minister, said earlier in the day that his country would sue Hungary if the latter refuses to accommodate asylum-seekers who had been registered in its territory.
In response, Szijjártó suggested that those illegal migrants should have been registered by the Greek authorities.
“While some countries fail to enforce the rules, is Hungary expected to bear the burden?” the Hungarian minister asked.
Referring to Hungary’s recent quota referendum, Szijjártó insisted that 3.3 million Hungarians voting “no” had answered that question.
