“Hungary will not give in”

The Hungarian government maintains its position concerning plans to introduce European migrant quotas, a state secretary at the justice ministry told a press conference on Wednesday.

Krisztian Kecsmar spoke after the government sent its response to the European Commission, which had launched an infringement procedure against Hungary over the matter. In its letter, the government raised objections for the commission’s “applying double standards” and the “unusually early deadlines” set for Hungary to act, the official said. Kecsmar argued that while “hardly any” EU members observed the community’s quota decision, the commission initiated proceedings against only three of them.

He added that not even those EU members observed the decision that had voted in favour of it. The Hungarian government is committed “to enforcing the will of voters”, the state secretary insisted, and said that “national identity, national sovereignty and the principle of equal treatment are fundamental values”.
