Parliament head of the defence committee: V4 countries demonstrate that illegal migration can be stopped

Members of the Visegrád Group have demonstrated for the world that illegal migration can be halted, the head of the defence committee of the Hungarian parliament said in Budapest on Thursday.

Addressing a meeting of V4 defence committees, Szilárd Németh said that “various organisations, political and economic forces and lobbyists” try to “push the view through the European Union and the UN” that migration is “a good thing”. Arguing that illegal migration is unstoppable, they intend to legalise it, he insisted.

Cooperation between the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia has proved since 2015 that the problem can be resolved, Németh said, adding that

although “there are still attempts” to cross these countries illegally, statistics show that the migration pressure has plummeted.

Hungary and the Visegrád Group have shown the world “how to cooperate, help each other and stand in solidarity,” Németh said. Lack of solidarity is a reproach often laid at Hungary’s door, he said. Solidarity, however, should be exercised not towards migrants but towards Europe, he said.

“Our priority is to preserve peace and calm in Europe and protect its security,” he said.
