“We’ve had the Tavares Report, now comes the Soros Report”, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said on May 17th in reaction to the fact that the European Parliament has called for the triggering of Article 7 infringement proceedings against Hungary.
“European institutions are clearly unable to accept the fact that despite the application of international pressure, the Government of Hungary is continuing to practice a migration policy that is exclusively aimed at ensuring the security of Hungary and the Hungarian people”, the Minister told Hungarian news agency MTI.
Referring to an MEP from Portugal’s green party, who was responsible for a previous report condemning Hungary, Mr. Szijjártó said that the latest EP vote was to all intents and purposes about “a Soros Report instead of a Tavares Report, and we are now witness to a new attack on Hungary by George Soros’s network”.
The Hungarian Foreign Minister stressed that “no matter what pressure they wish to apply on us” and no matter what reports the EP is asked to adopt, the Government of Hungary will continue to concentrate on the security of Hungary and the safety of the Hungarian people. Everyone can be certain that “not a single illegal immigrant will be allowed to set foot in Hungary”, Mr. Szijjártó declared.
