Budapest, September 29 (MTI) – Prime Minister Viktor Orban met Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi for talks on the migrant crisis at the UN Headquarters in New York City, the PM’s office said.
The two were in agreement that the ongoing migrant crisis is one of global proportions requiring an equally wide-ranging solution, the cabinet press spokesman Bertalan Havasi said.
Havasi said the two leaders were also in agreement that it is essential to prevent Europe’s migrant crisis from leading to the spread of anti-Islamic sentiment across the continent.
Orban told al-Sisi that the problem in Europe was not Islam but rather mass illegal migration.
Havasi said Orban and Sisi were in agreement that it is important to ensure the implementation of the bilateral pacts signed recently in Budapest.
Al-Sisi invited the prime minister for an official visit to Egypt, Havasi said.
