Budapest, June 26 (MTI) – Today Hungary stands for order in an ever increasingly disorderly Europe, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said at an event in Budapest on Sunday.
Addressing graduates of the University of Public Administration, the prime minister said that many European leaders were failing to undertake the struggle against modern mass migration and against the influx of illegal migrants. What results is the decay of public security, the threat of violence and general dissatisfaction, he said.
Hungary has embarked on a journey in the opposite direction, and in the past few years millions of Hungarians have recovered their belief in a country that is a safe and liveable, he insisted.
“Today’s disorderly Europe is incapable of finding solutions to the borders besieged by illegal migrants or the flourishing business of people smuggling; not to mention the challenges posed by terrorism,” Orbán said. “In the future, countries which maintain order, provide security and uphold legality will have an advantage,” he said, adding that without order there is no economic growth or investments.
On the topic of Brexit, Orbán said that Britons had opted to take their fate back into their own hands. “They are not any longer asking for any lectures,” he said, adding that they had become fed up with uncertainty and paralysis as well as “tirades without action”. Britons were also beginning to feel estranged from Europe, the prime minister said.
Orbán said he trusted that the EU would now change quickly and pull itself up from its bootstraps.
