PM Orban: Most migrants to Europe not refugees
Brussels, September 3 (MTI) – Europe today is not facing a refugee crisis because most of the illegal migrants are not refugees, Prime Minister Viktor Orban told a news conference in Brussels after talks with the president of the European Commission.
Many of the migrants are indeed refugees but many more are not fleeing wars or persecution but have set out to Europe in hope of having a better standard of living, Orban said after meeting Jean-Claude Juncker. There is an increasing number of migrants who are not from war zones and there is an unlimited supply of them, he added.
Orban said it should be made clear to these people that it is not worth setting out to Europe in search of a better life. Migrants who are not from war zones will not get the opportunity to live on the continent, he added.
