Europe remains ‘defenseless’ against migrants – Hungary’s FM
Europe remains threatened by unchecked immigration and must focus on stopping it, three years after the mass influx of about a million people, Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said Friday. The EU should screen asylum-seekers in camps created outside its own borders, Szijjarto told AP. “Now we are exactly where we used to be three years ago,” he said. “The EU is defenseless from the south and from the southeast.” Szijjarto spoke on the sidelines of a regional EU foreign ministers meeting in Greece. “We should not speak about how to encourage migration, how to manage migration, we should speak about how to stop the migratory flows,” Szijjarto said. “If the migratory flows continue then that would pose a significant security threat” to Europe, the minister added.
