Hungarian foreign minister criticises EU for ‘failed’ migration policy

Budapest, March 16 (MTI) – The European Union’s migration policy “based on a partial solution” has failed, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó told a press conference on Thursday, concerning Turkey’s possible terminating its deal with the community.

Szijjártó said that making Europe’s security dependent on such a deal, while “criticising Turkey and doing nothing to step up border protection,” is an “ill-considered and futile” policy. He insisted that “it had been apparent from the beginning that the EU-Turkey agreement could not handle the mass immigration issue in the long run”. He also suggested that “if once more thousands of migrants arrived at the borders each day, the EU would be just as helpless as it was a few months or years ago.”

The minister said the right attitude was to reinforce the “legal and physical border seal” and noted the importance of Hungary’s new rules, under which illegal entrants could be detained, in light of the “fragile nature of the EU’s migration policy”.

Answering a question about a recent dispute between the Netherlands and Turkey, Szijjártó said it was “lamentable” that NATO allies should have a “conflict over such a question”. He added that the tension could impact security policy cooperation.

    We should set up a Fenced border control between Hungary and Romania because they dont respect our people living in now their land. Who’s to say when the migrant come in at an overwhelming rate that the Romanians will allow them access to Hungary and the rest of EU. I say stop them before they come, and only allow the tribes, Szeklers, Csango, etc. Hungarians, across, maybe Hungarian speaking ROMA as they dont hurt us. Fuck the rest of the Dracula culture!
