Szijjarto: EU ‘aiming to increase migration pressure on member states’
Speaking on the sidelines of a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels, Szijjarto said the agreement, which is being extended after its expiration in December 2020, “completely ignores the new reality that millions of people have lost their jobs in Europe”. “Now is not the time to inspire people from the [ACP] region to come to Europe,” he said.
Hungary will fight against the agreement with all tools at its disposal, he said, and called it unacceptable that “Brussels should launch a new attack to ramp up migration in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.”
“We insist on national parliaments having a say in whether they want to ratify a pro-migration document,” he added.
