Opposition DK, Egyutt say nothing new in Orban’s six proposals on migrant crisis
Budapest, September 23 (MTI) – The leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) said that four of the six proposals the prime minister is to submit at the extraordinary EU summit in Brussels later in the day are not new, but “stolen” ideas.
The European Commission had already proposed before that the EU’s borders should in the first place be protected in Greece, DK’s deputy leader told MTI.
Brussels also proposed earlier that a distinction should be made between refugees and economic migrants, Csaba Molnar said.
Brussels also proposed earlier drawing up a list of safe countries and ensuring funding.
Commenting on Orban’s fifth proposal on developing a partnership with states whose involvement in handling the migrant crisis is unavoidable, such as Turkey and Russia, DK said it was aimed at “representing the interests” of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Egyutt party said the core of it had already been included in European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s package of proposals. Egyutt supports the migration quota scheme and Hungary’s giving shelter to 15,000 migrants, it said.
