The United Nations’ Migration Treaty was passed by a long-lasting acclamation on 10 December during a meeting in Morocco and will be formally passed in New York City in the near future.
In Hungary, however, there is no applause. «What is going on in the United Nations is legalisation of illegal immigration», the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Péter Szijjártó, tells Hungarian journalists. He harshly confronts the immigration policy of the united Nations, and is cited on the homepage of the Hungarian Government.
«Illegal immigration has taken place in an organised and controlled way in Europe since 2015», the Minister of Foreign Affairs says.
«The struggle to stop or organise immigration has gone on for three and a half years. The view of the Hungarian Government has ben clear and unchanged from the very beginning, The migration carries dangers with it, it may be stopped, and it must be stopped», the Minister points out.
«What happened during the negotiations on the shaping of the United Nations’ Global Compact for Migration was no less than a treachery to the European population. The documents constituting the Compact Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, as the treaty is officially named, do not at all represent European interests», he made clear.
«Hungary wishes that in the future, the EU will remain a place in which Christmas is still Christmas, complete with Christmas trees. Europe must insist on its own traditions and inheritance, and today we must stand up against any attempt at permanently changing the population of the EU», he stated.
«In our opinion, Europe does not experience any refugee problem but a migration problem. And the transfer processes must be stopped. Hungary regards illegal immigrants as illegal immigrants and not as refugees», it says on the homepage of the Hungarian Government.
«Refugees are people whose homes are devastated by war, and who have been forced to leave their home by terrorist organisations. These people must be helped either in their place or in the safe place closest to their home country», the Minister of Foreign Affairs said.
The formal voting on the treaty of the United Nations is to take place in New York City in the near future. Then, a fourth of the member countries of the EU, seven countries, will not support the Global Compact for Migration.
