Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, on the sidelines of an informal meeting of European foreign ministers, said the European Socialists planned channelised migration to Europe.

Szijjártó labelled this as “dangerous” and something to be prevented by voters in the European parliamentary elections.
The minister was reacting to comments on Wednesday by commission vice-president Frans Timmermans, the left-wing’s EC presidential candidate, who commented on a commission policy paper he co-authored that addresses the issue of migration.
“Migration should be stopped rather than organised,” Szijjártó said in Bucharest. Referring to billionaire George Soros, he said: “It is clear that Frans Timmermans and the European Socialists are following the orders of the Soros network and want to further intensify migration trends in the direction of Europe.” The strengthening of migration trends can be prevented only if anti-migration forces gain a majority in the EP elections, he said. “This is a big debate taking place in the council of foreign ministers, too, because several governments in Europe have taken a pro-migration stand,” Szijjártó said. “But I believe that voters will be able to decide in the EP elections which direction Europe should follow on this matter.”
