Minister Szíjjártó: U.N. migration pact a global danger

The United Nations' Global Migration Pact represents a clear danger to the entire world as it will trigger large migration waves, Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szíjjártó said in Liechtenstein.

Szíjjártó - on an official visit to Liechtenstein - told national news agency MTI in a telephone interview that the document has everything to facilitate migration but nothing to keep it in check.

This package only takes into account the interests of the migrants but does not deal with the interests of those who want to live in peace and safety in their own countries

He said the fact that in the U.N. General Assembly 40 states did not vote on the migration pact is a clear indication that the attempts to make the document one of international reference lack credibility and are unacceptable.

He said that during his talks in Liechtenstein the issue of migration was a central one, adding that the parliament of Liechtenstein also had a day of debate about migration and due to the concerns voiced there, the country eventually abstained from voting on the pact.

"I said that Hungary will continue to deny the entry of all illegal migrants, we consider the protection of our borders a national security issue and we will continue to defend our borders - which we consider to be a solely nation competence," Szíjjártó said.
