According to György Bakondi, Chief Security Advisor to the Prime Minister, Hungary will do everything it can against the introduction of the mandatory quotas, and will not yield to any pressure regarding its decision that only those people may enter the territory of the country whom the Hungarian authorities let in on the basis of the laws of Hungary.

On Friday on the public service television news channel M1 Mr Bakondi was interviewed regarding the fact that at one of the accompanying events of the UN General Assembly in New York, European commissioner for migration Dimitris Avramopoulos urged Member States of the European Union to honour their undertakings relating to the relocation and resettlement of immigrants.

Mr Bakondi stressed that the Hungarian people had multiple opportunities to state their opinion on the resettlement of migrants in the relevant referendum, in national consultations and also at the latest parliamentary elections: the vast majority do not agree with the EU’s migration policy and support the government’s policy whose main goal is to guarantee security.

He indicated at the same time he does not believe that the adoption of the mandatory quotas could be “pushed through” because they have very little support.

According to the chief advisor, Dimitris Avramopoulos’s statement and, among others,  President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker’s recent communication regarding the matter clearly show that intensive efforts are being made to create an irreversible situation on the issue of migration before the EP elections which will negatively affect Europe’s future over an extended period. Additionally, these concepts are not in harmony with the will of the majority of electors, he added.
