Szijjarto rejects EU politicians ‘siding with armed migrants and people smugglers’

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Monday said it was "amazing" that "certain European politicians" were "still on the side of migrants, who frequently fire shots at Hungary's southern border" and they were also "on the side of people smugglers".

In response to the German foreign minister’s suggestion that asylum seekers arriving in the European Union should be distributed among the member states “in an orderly and fair way,” Szijjarto said: “Certain European politicians have been living in a state of delusion since 2015.”

In a Facebook post, the minister said the politicians in question persisted in arguing in favour of the acceptance and redistribution of migrants in the EU, “despite the extraordinary wave of migrants, parallel societies, no-go zones and aggressive pressure” of migrants at the border.

Migrants must be stopped at the border, not distributed, he said.

“We should clear the air in Brussels and Berlin, and make clear that crossing the border illegally is a serious crime that should be punished accordingly,” Szijjarto said.
