Orban on EU summit: Hungary wants no compulsory migrant expatriations
Budapest, November 29 (MTI) – Hungary is “ready to pay” but will not accept any compulsory placement of migrants on its territory, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said ahead of a European Union-Turkey summit on Sunday.
Hungary wants guarantees that the action plan to be adopted at the summit will not be disadvantageous from Hungary’s point of view, Orban said. The plan adopted at the last summit could have “gone sour” in which case Hungary would have had to take in migrants involuntarily, he said, adding that he hoped the current plans with Turkey would not bring about such a situation.
Orban said Hungary will support the action plan which hopefully will reduce the migration pressure on the EU and Hungary.
Leaders of the Visegrad Four grouping will hold talks separately before the summit.
