The Hungarian Government was the only one in Europe to ask the people about immigration

Péter Szijjártó

Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade“In contrast to the claim made by the French Minister for EU Affairs, Hungary was the only state in Europe in which the Government asked the people’s opinion on illegal immigration”, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in a statement to Hungarian news agency MTI on Sunday.
Reacting to a Twitter post by Nathalie Loiseau, the Minister stressed: “Hungary will also not be giving up its right to defend its borders, even if the politicians in Paris, Brussels and Strasbourg want to take that away from us so that they can allow in the migrants”.

“The Hungarian Government is saying no to illegal immigration In accordance with the will of the Hungarian and European people, while the cowardly pro-immigration politicians didn’t dare to ask the people”, he added.

In a Twitter post on Saturday, the French Government’s Minister for EU Affairs claimed that in contrast to France, Hungary and Italy had not organised debates on Europe. “Perhaps the populists are afraid to let the people voice their opinion”, Nathalie Loiseau suggested.
