“Brussels pro-immigration politicians” are attempting to make the UN Global Compact for Migration compulsory
According to the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the “Brussels pro-immigration politicians” are trying to regard migration as something that does not bear a security risk with it. Also through stealthy legislation they are attempting to make the UN Global Compact for Migration compulsory, which they previously claimed will not be mandatory.
Speaking on Hungarian M1 television’s Tuesday morning current affairs program, Minister of State for Communication at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Tamás Menczer said the Global Compact for migration was not adopted by nine EU member states, but they nevertheless want to use it as a basis of reference in every EU document.
“At a meeting of EU and Arab League foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday, Hungary did not support a document in which the Global Compact for Migration was cited as a joint standpoint”, he stated.
“It is antidemocratic to cite the Global Compact for Migration as a joint standpoint in view of the fact that one third of EU member states id not vote for it”
According to Mr. Menczer, the isolation of Hungarian diplomacy is an old dream of the pro-immigration forces; “we have been listening to this accusation for four years, while periods high diplomatic activity are coming one after the other.”
The Minister of State emphasised that Hungary wants to stop migration and wants to rather provide assistance where the trouble is. He added:
“The Global Compact for Migration wants to organise and legalise illegal immigration, not stop it, and accordingly all documents that cite the Compact are also aimed at this same goal”
Speaking on Kossuth Radio’s “Good Morning, Hungary!” show, Mr. Menczer spoke about the fact that cooperation must be conducted with the countries of the Arab League within the fields of border protection, the fight against terrorism and economic development.
“There are countries within the Arab League that also do not want the replacement of populations, want to protect their borders, and want to help their citizens remain in place”.
Just a day before in a statement following a meeting of foreign ministers from the EU’s member states and the countries of the Arab league in Brussels, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó declared: “The lie of the pro-immigration Brussels politicians has been uncovered, because it has once again transpired that Brussels has taken the side of the UN Global Compact for Migration, and ‘although they tried to mislead us’ that the migration package will not be mandatory, they are attempting to adopt it.”
“If we want to adopt joint documents, the Global Compact for Migration cannot be a part of them. Because that is only good for launching new waves of migration and for ignoring the rights of those who would like to live in peace in their own homes without having the make-up of their country’s population changed”, he underlined.
With relation to the draft closing document of the meeting, Mr. Szijjartó stressed that Hungary can agree on many things, but not on one. It continues to be unable to talk about migration as something that should be handled, and to regard migration as something that does not bear a security risk with it, and it will also not be a partner in bringing the UN Global Compact for Migration back “through the back door”.
