Orbán inspects border fence with Serbia – Photos

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán paid a visit to the Hungarian-Serbian border to inspect the fence erected to prevent illegal migration, on Friday.

According to a video footage posted on Facebook, Orbán noted that in 2015 Hungary faced the arrival of masses of people at its border and had no chance to stop the flow.

“It was a rather bad feeling that our homeland was exposed, but then we built the fence”, he said,

adding that during his visit today he could “see for himself” what a solid structure the fence is to protect the country.

He said he also met local police leaders and staff, who told him that

without the fence more than 44,000 people would have crossed illegally to Hungary in 2017.

“This fence protects not only Hungary, but the whole of Europe,” he said, and called on the EU to contribute to the construction costs Hungary had paid fully on its own.

The prime minister praised troops and police officers for their excellence in performing their duties.
