Budapest, September 6 (MTI) – Hungary observes all rules and regulations of the European Union upon handling the current, “astoundingly massive” wave of migrants, and makes every possible effort to protect the Schengen border, Hungary’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade told MTI on Sunday.
The ministry responded to a Sunday interview in which Christian Levrat, leader of the Swiss Social Democratic Party, proposed that Switzerland should freeze financial support for Hungary because of the “human rights situation and refugee scandal”.
The head of the second strongest party of the governing coalition also proposed that the Swiss authorities should ban Prime Minister Viktor Orban from entering the territory of Switzerland.
The ministry said that such statements fail to help find an appropriate solution to the crisis and are only suitable for needlessly lashing up political sentiments.
