The outspoken Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán, has drawn a line in the sand with Brussels over the question of immigration and national sovereignty, promising a veto if the European Union (EU) attempts to coerce Hungary into taking in more migrants.
In a live radio broadcast last Friday, Orbán told interviewer Éva Kocsis that he is opposed to transferring any further decision-making authority to Brussels, especially regarding areas that impinge directly on Hungarian sovereignty, such as immigration, the fixing of taxes and wages, and Hungary’s border fence.
In his critique of “the Brussels bureaucrats,” the Prime Minister insisted that he is not “anti-Europe” but wishes merely to halt the EU’s creeping arrogation of further powers to itself and to maintain the current relationship as it is.
“So when we say, ‘Stop, no further,’ we’re simply defending the status quo,” he said.
