Brussels (MTI) – Migrants will not be distributed among European Union members on a mandatory basis under the closing document of Sunday’s EU-Turkey summit in Brussels, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said after the event.
Hungary’s interests have been successfully promoted, Orban said.
The document provides “clear guarantees” for Hungary that it will not be obliged to accommodate any migrants unvoluntarily, the prime minister said.
Orban said that the 3 billion euros offered by the EU to help Turkey finance refugee services, would cover a two-year period. He added that Hungary’s contribution of 18 million euros to the European effort was in proportion with the country’s GDP.
