“Hungary will only support a joint EU standpoint which states that migration is a dangerous process that must be stopped”, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó declared on Hungarian M1 television’s Wednesday morning current affairs program.

The politician made the statement with relation to the fact that negotiations on the UN Compact for Migration continued in New York this week, and the European Union was unable to put forward a joint position because of Hungary’s resistance.

The Hungarian Foreign Minister said that in his opinion Federica Mogherini, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, displayed an un-European approach when she criticised Hungary for preventing the drawing up of a joint standpoint.

“Mogherini is an extremely pro-immigration politician”, he added.

“We, who live here in Europe, know that the basic premise set down by the UN, according to which migration is good an unstoppable, is a lie. Because over the past two and a half years people with migrant backgrounds have committed 27 acts of terrorism on the continent, claiming a total of 330 innocent lives”, Mr. Szijjártó said.

“Only we Hungarians can decide who we allow into our homeland, and with whom we want to cohabit. Furthermore, we also do not accept the fact that a homogenous and uniform Christian society is less valuable that a multicultural society. This is why it is important that after 8 April Hungary continues to have a Government that stands in the way of the mandatory quota and the concept of a global migration package that defines immigration to be a fundamental human right”, the Minister said.

Speaking on Kossuth Radio’s “180 Minutes” program, Mr. Szijjártó said the Hungarians had been witness to 400 thousand people marching through Hungary.

“We don’t want to live with people like this”, he declared.

He pointed out that the opposition parties are continuously criticising the current government’s migration policy.

“Amongst others they objected to the border security fence and did not vote in favour of the amendment that would have included the rejection of the mandatory resettlement quota in the Constitution. If they come into power they will do away with the current migration policy, which would be in the interests of the UN and the EU, but would be very bad for Hungary”, Mr. Szijjártó said.
