Regarding the challenges facing Hungary, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told the “Tusványos” Summer University in Băile Tușnad (Tusnádfürdő), Romania, that the greatest challenge was that deaths still outstripped births, with no change of the tide in sight. “Our situation has improved but there is still no turnaround, and without a turnaround Hungary and the Carpathian Basin will sooner or later be ‘repopulated’ away from us,” he said. Migration has divided Europe, he said. “The West is split in two”, with one half comprising countries where European and non-European peoples live together. “Those countries are no longer nations,” he said. “In a spiritual sense, the West has moved to central Europe,” he said. The two halves of Europe are locked in a battle, he said. The West has rejected central Europe’s desire to allow each nation to live as they like, “and they continue to fight central Europe with the aim of changing us to be like them,” he said. Orbán said the West was fighting against central Europe together with Brussels and financier George Soros’s “troops” to “force migrants on us”.
