Budapest, March 22 (MTI) – The terrorist bombings in Brussels, Paris and Turkey show that the more uncontrolled arrivals are allowed in Europe, the greatest the dangers become, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Tuesday.
It must be clear now to all that the right response is not “to open the gates even wider” but to “protect ourselves” and put an end to “insane policies” allowing uncontrolled entrants, he told a press conference.
In response to a question, Szijjártó stressed the need to up the fight against the Islamic State and as long as a breakthrough against the terrorist organisation is not achieved, attacks similar to the ones in Brussels may happen.
The minister said the Hungarians injured in Tuesday’s bombings are in good condition. He advised all Hungarians not to travel to Brussels where he said the situation was serious. He added that a planned government delegation visit for Wednesday has been cancelled.
In the meantime, Brussels Airlines announced that it has cancelled all Wednesday flights between Budapest and Brussels, Budapest Airport spokesman Mihály Hardy said.
