ORBÁN: HUNGARY WON'T GIVE IN TO BRUSSELS' MIGRATION POLICY

 

Hungary is capable of defending its stance on migration and refuses to give in to Brussels’s “flawed migration policy”, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in a radio interview. Only Hungarians have the right to decide whom they will allow into their country, the prime minister told Kossuth Radio. “This is a Hungarian matter, it’s about our life and our country and we won’t allow anyone to destroy our way of life and hard-fought achievements with bad ideas, advice or instructions,” Orbán said. The prime minister said he understood the “tender-hearted” statements he said western European leaders often made, adding, however that these remarks tended to come off as “lecturing”. Orbán said he ignores these “words of advice” because the European leaders who give them “live in an alternate reality”, adding that Hungarians should be left to protect their country and way of life from migration.
