Valetta (MTI) – Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on the sidelines of an EU-Africa summit in Malta on Thursday that the European Union was “not too effective” in handling migration because member states were “lacking the will”.

Prime ministers of EU countries have been insisting steadily that the migration influx cannot be stopped. Yet some Greek boat captains have decided to deny travel to migrants from the islands and this helped stop the wave immediately, Orban told Hungary’s public news channel M1 in Valletta.

“We have evidence, more than just Hungary’s border fence, that the EU is lacking will to stop this flow,” Orban said. “The sad truth is that a few Greek ferry captains are more efficient in combating migration than 28 EU prime ministers have been after several meetings,” he said.

He said a “risky” point of the meeting that started on Wednesday was when prime ministers started to talk about the benefits of migration, insisting that migration, when managed well, can bring a lot of advantages to both the sending and receiving countries. Orban said he did not agree with this position and stressed that the migration crisis in Europe today was “not a win-win, but a no-win situation,” where nobody benefits. The sending countries are losing their most valuable labourers, those physically most fit and those taking on the most valuable jobs, he said. “And we get a community of people on our backs that we are unable to integrate,” he said, adding that he had called attention to the dangers of migration at the summit.

Orban said the 28 leaders were meeting separately this afternoon, which “should be a tough discussion” about what is expected of Turkey. Hungary’s position is the following: “we don’t want the EU to sit down to talks with Turkey in a way that would create the impression that Turkey will be its saviour.” It is not possible to talk while one party regards the other as “last hope”, Orban said. The EU should first build up its own line of defence, “protect ourselves without Turkey” and after that we can reach a reasonable agreement with Turkey, Orban said.

He added that the idea of giving 3 billion euros to Turkey instead of giving it to Bulgaria and Macedonia was “unfortunate”. Those two countries could protect their borders “if the Greeks are not willing to protect their own southern borders,” he said.

The Visegrad grouping of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia met on the sidelines of the summit. They decided to send more than 300 border patrol and police officers to Greece, where the “wave of migrants can be stopped at the southern borders”, Orban told M1. The V4 countries also agreed in Valletta that they would jointly contribute to the funds aimed at curbing the influx of migration, he added. In addition, the V4 members agreed to hold a summit in Prague in December this year, to which the president of South Korea would also be invited. In addition, British proposals on EU reform will be discussed, Orban said.

  1. It seems to me that Viktor Orban is the ONLY E.U. leader with the GUTS to describe Europe’s present migration ‘problem’ for what it is – an INVASION and (attempted) ISLAMIFICATION of the continent.

    Saladin and Suleiman the Magnificent (amongst other notable Muslim military leaders of the past) must be laughing uncontrollably in their graves at Europe’s TOTAL INEPTITUDE at dealing with this situation !

    The bureaucrats in Brussels (what a bunch of PINK POODLES !!) are definitely suffering from mass lunacy which (I suspect) has spread to the leaders of certain E.U. nations (notably Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Denmark & Sweden).

    At least some of those leaders have now had their ‘shots’ and (partially) come to their senses….

    Let’s be HONEST for a minute folks.

    These ‘migrants’ will NEVER integrate into European society – they just want to get the ‘freebies’ !! And guess who is supposed to pay for it all….

    It must also be realised that these same ‘migrants’ will multiply like rabbits on fertility drugs and so end up CONTROLLING not only Hungary but ALL of Europe !!

    I suppose it will be O.K. if you are in the ‘halal’ meat business …

    VIKTOR ORBAN IS 100% CORRECT WHEN HE SAYS THAT THE BORDERS INTO EUROPE SHOULD BE CLOSED ONCE AND FOR ALL AND MONEY / AID GIVEN TO BULGARIA & MACEDONIA – TO KEEP THE ‘MIGRANTS’ OUT – INSTEAD OF TO TURKEY (OR TOTALLY CORRUPT AFRICAN GOVERNMENTS) TO TRY & KEEP THE ‘MIGRANTS’ THERE !!

    Which brings me to another point .

    Who gave that half-wit Merkel the RIGHT to decide that Germany will RETURN these ‘migrants’ (who only came to Europe in such huge numbers this year after SHE opened her STUPID MOUTH and INVITED them all to Germany !!!) to the country into which they first entered the E.U. ??

    IF her formula is followed to the letter, then most of the ‘migrants’ in Germany should be ‘returned’ to Greece or Italy, both of which were TOTALLY RUINED BY GERMANY during World War 2 but (unlike Germany) were NOT ‘forgiven’ their huge loans !!!

    WHAT A DAMN HIPPOCRITICAL BITCH !!!

    On behalf of the generous people of Germany, she invited all these so-called ‘migrants’ to Germany so they should damn well stay in Germany !!!

    HOW DARE SHE SUGGEST THAT HUNGARY OR OTHER COUNTRIES SHOULD TAKE THESE ‘LOCUSTS’ ???

    I think it’s definitely time that the Schengen rules concerning ‘free movement’ of people & goods within the E.U. should be SUSPENDED until this Merkel-induced MADNESS is STOPPED once and for all !! If need be the rules should be SCRAPPED !!!

    AS I have stated before, Viktor Orban is the ONLY voice of sanity in a sea of madness.

    Keep up the great work !

  2. It was Merkel’s (and Soros’) plan to create a crisis for the member states. The crisis would overwhelm the member governments and FORCE them to allow a strengthened EU to impose an EU-wide solution. It back-fired.But do not think for one second that Merkel will give up her quest for an EU-sponsored Fourth Reich with herself as Fuhrer.

    We are witnessing the early stages of civil war.
