Budapest, October 5 (MTI) – The pressure of migration as a global problem is expected to increase, the foreign minister said on Monday, giving a briefing in parliament about his attendance of the United Nations General Assembly.

Peter Szijjarto said there were two reasons for the migration pressure on Europe: any breakthrough by international forces opposed to the Islamic State terrorist organisation (IS) “has yet to come” and major instability in the Middle East and north Africa have taken a turn for the worse due to decisions made on the international stage.

He said the issue was a global challenge which needed a global response, and he noted a five-point proposal Hungary made at the UN General Assembly, including strengthening the international action against IS, stabilising the situation in the Middle East, introducing global migrant quotas and boosting UN peace-keeping missions.
