Hungarian Justice Minister László Trócsányi discussed migration and justice related issues with his Lebanese counterpart, Salim Jreissati, in Budapest on Monday.
Jreissati told MTI that talks focused on migration policy, victim protection and justice cooperation between Lebanon and Hungary.
He said Trócsányi gave them an outline of the Hungarian government’s “clear-cut” defence and security policy which, he added, was justifiable.
Jreissati said Lebanon also understands and supports Hungary’s migration policy.
Migration is a security and socio-economic challenge for Lebanon which also puts strains on the local justice system, he added.
In remarks to MTI, Trócsányi said he told Jreissati that Hungary considers security a priority. He noted that Hungary rejects EU’s migrant quotas and the UN’s Global Compact on Migration plan in its current form.
The two officials also discussed victim protection and amnesty policy, and agreed on the need to tighten amnesty rules and cooperate in these two areas in the future.
