Minister of the Prime Minister’s Office János Lázár has said that Europe and Hungary must prepare for further millions of people setting off for Europe. We need sustainable long-term measures, he emphasised. He also emphasised that approximately ninety per cent of migrants arriving at the Hungarian border are doing so through organised acts of human smuggling, the Minister explained.
It is in our common interest that all Member States abide by EU legislation. Order and legality must be restored at the borders of the European Union.
Crossing the border in an illicit manner will be a crime from the middle of September and will be sanctioned, the Minister in charge of the Prime Minister’s Office said on Friday in Kiszombor, near the Romanian border.
Hungary has no choice but to restore order along its border and that of the European Union, because otherwise it will be unable to successfully stem the flow of illegal immigrants, Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács said on Hungarian M1 television’s “Actual Channel” programme on Thursday evening.
It is absolutely unacceptable that the authorities of countries along the so-called Western Balkan route are facilitating a mass influx of people towards the Schengen borders about whom they know absolutely nothing, the Government Spokesperson said on Hungarian M1 Television’s “Actual Channel” programme.
