In an interview to public radio, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said Brussels had failed to keep migrants out of Europe and had also failed to keep Britain inside. Brussels, he added, had made serious political mistakes in their handling of Brexit. At the same time, the document received in advance of the special EU summit on Sunday, “which is satisfactory from Hungary’s point of view”, protects the interests of Hungarians living and working in the United Kingdom, Orbán said, adding that the rights of Hungarian workers will not be compromised. Orbán noted that surveys have been carried out in Hungary and in the UK concerning EU matters. In Hungary’s consultation and referendum, Hungarians said they wanted “more national sovereignty and less Brussels,” while the British went even further, he said. He also noted that the Hungarian government put an newspaper advertisement urging the British to remain in the EU.
