SZIJJÁRTÓ: GREECE OBLIGED TO PROTECT EU BORDER

 

Greece has an obligation to protect the European Union’s external, Schengen borders, Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said at a press conference. The minister said he contacted his Greek counterpart once migrants in Turkey set off for Europe. Szijjártó vowed that Hungary would be able to protect its southern borders “even if a wave of migrants sweeps across the Western Balkans”. “We won’t allow anyone to enter illegally and we will not give in to any pressure.” It has been clear for months that Turkey, which has accommodated some 4 million migrants, has two options: either to help them return to their homelands or “open up its gates to Europe”, Szijjártó said. “It’s time for Brussels to wake up and do what it can ensure security for Europeans instead of its hypocritical and dangerous immigration policy.” Conditions must be created in which the refugees can return home, Szijjártó said.
