In a letter written to the Presidents of the European Commission and the European Parliament, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán sought Europe’s help in the matter of illegal migration, namely that those awaiting deportation should be sent back to the country in which they first entered the territory of the European Union, János Lázár, the Minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office said at his usual Thursday press conference in Budapest.
“We are full” – these were the words used by Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács on the Tuesday night news programme of the public service television channel M1 to comment on the fact that, for technical reasons, the Office of Immigration and Nationality is suspending the acceptance of illegal migrants from other EU Member States in pending cases for an indefinite term.
The issue of the management of the migration crisis dominated the meeting of EU ministers and state secretaries responsible for community affairs held on Tuesday in Luxembourg with a view to making preparations for this week’s summit of heads of states and prime ministers, Szabolcs Takács, State Secretary for EU Affairs of the Prime Minister’s Office said upon rendering an account of the debates held, adding that a significant number of Member States are opposed to receiving refugees on the basis of mandatory quotas.

It is an absolutely realistic target for Hungary to absorb 100 per cent of the EU funds available for the period between 2007-2013, and no one calls this into question any more, Nándor Csepreghy, Deputy State Secretary for Development Policy Communication said in response to the latest report of the international consulting firm KPMG.
The Government has adopted a responsible decision on the security fence to be erected along the Hungarian-Serbian green state border, the details of which will be discussed in the next few days, Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács said on the current affairs programme of the public service television channel M1.
