According to the Government Spokesperson, if the will exists, the borders can be protected. Speaking on Hungarian M1 television’s Thursday evening current affairs program, Zoltán Kovács said the Italian measures prove that Europe’s maritime borders can also be protected.

Government Spokesperson pointed out that after arriving in Brussels for the two-day meeting of the European Council of EU heads of state and government that began on Thursday, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán had stated: We must return to democracy In Europe.

According to Mr. Kovács, the Prime Minister also stressed that it is time for parties belonging to major mainstream political party families to hear the opinion of the people. “All solutions must be based on the will of the European people”, the Government Spokesperson emphasised.

The Government Spokesperson said that in his opinion there is a chance of coming to an agreement on two issues at the summit: border protection and the establishment of refugee camps outside the borders of the European Union.
