Hungary is still stepping out of the migration agreement of the United Nations that was concluded last week. The various member states agreed last Friday on measures on how countries can deal with mass migration.
The Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Péter Szijjártó, called the agreement today "dangerous, extremist, biased and encouraging migration". The United States last week was the only country that had not signed the agreement.
UN agreement on mass migration
The agreement had to be 'safer and more structured' due to the migration of refugees measures. Szijjártó now states that, according to the Hungarian government, the content of that agreement is contrary to 'common sense'. According to him, the agreement also conflicts with the intention to restore European security.
"Our primary responsibility is the security of Hungary and the Hungarian people, and this document is completely contrary to the security interests of the country."
According to the UN, the accord contains no strict rules, but many 'practical guidelines'. "The strength of the agreement is the practical value", according to the Swiss ambassador Jurg Lauber. "It is a sort of catalog with measures." The agreement has yet to be formally adopted. That happens in December in Morocco.
