If somebody attacks Poland, they attack the whole of central Europe, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Friday and added that Hungary’s interest is to show solidarity with the Poles and make it clear that no European Union punishment can be introduced against them.

Speaking to public Kossuth Radio, Orbán said the EU procedure against Poland was “unfair and unreasonable”.

“Without Poland there is no strong central Europe,” he added.

A sweeping majority of Poles share the same view about migration as Hungarians, he said.

Tens of thousands of migrants have arrived in Poland from former Soviet areas plus more than a million Ukrainians but the EU refuses to take this into consideration. They consider something a problem only if it is a problem for Western countries, he added.

For that matter, in another interview, the Prime Minister said that

Hungary “is facing another attack”

because those who want to introduce a mandatory migrant quota in Europe will try again next year, since there was no decision on the subject at December’s European Union summit.

He said he had not yet succeeded in convincing his opponents in Europe, with the number of those urging the introduction of a migrant quota being unchanged. They are expected to argue in support of their position at an upcoming summit in March, Orbán added.
