“No hearing or application of pressure will dissuade the Hungarian Government from representing the standpoint of the Hungarian people; the Cabinet will stick to its migration policy”, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said at a press conference in Brussels following the hearing of the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) on Thursday, the main topic of which was the state of the rule of law in Hungary.

The Minister said illegal immigration was dangerous and that the decision on the mandatory resettlement quotas was a bad and damaging decision, adding that “Hungary will fight till the last breath to ensure that decisions that go against the security and will of the Hungarian people do not come into force”.


Mr. Szijjártó also said he had no doubt that the report on Hungary “had already been written”.
