UN spending on migration instead of on counter-terrorism is “untenable”
The United Nations wastes money on facilitating migration that poses a danger to the entire world, instead of on fighting terrorism, Péter Szijjártó, the Hungarian foreign minister, told a counter-terrorism conference in Vienna on Tuesday. “Europe must be given back its security, and the continent must be protected".
The United Nations wastes money on facilitating migration that poses a danger to the entire world, instead of on fighting terrorism, the Hungarian foreign minister told a counter-terrorism conference in Vienna.
He said the UN global migration compact encouraged people to leave their homelands. This, he added, endangered regions and countries of migration passage.
“We call on the UN to include in its budget counter-terrorism … and to spend less on migration,” the minister told the conference organised by the UN, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and by Switzerland.
“Europe must be given back its security, and the continent must be protected from global terrorism. This requires four steps: ISIS must be permanently defeated, the borders must be protected, communities that have fled from the terror must be given assistance to enable them to return home, and the fight against terrorism must be made into one of the main duties of the United Nations”, he underlined.
“Accordingly, the tasks are as follows: we must prevent the Islamic State from sending back the foreign fighters who joined its ranks in the Middle East and North Africa so that these people can act as ‘lone wolves or sleeper cells’ and carry out attacks here”, he further explained. “There are still thousands of European Union citizens in the aforementioned regions”, he pointed out.
