Szijjarto hits back at UN commissioner

The UN human rights commissioner has declared war against the Hungarian government for seeking to ensure the security of the Hungarian people in the face of illegal migration, Peter Szijjarto, the foreign minister, said on Monday.

In a statement, Szijjarto responded to Zeid Raad al-Hussein, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, who criticised the immigration policies of America, China, Myanmar and Hungary during Monday’s opening of the 38th session of the World Human Rights Council.

The high commissioner criticised Hungary for the “Stop Soros” bill which seeks to impose restrictions on organisations that aid refugees and penalise human rights monitoring at borders and their surrounding areas.

Szijjarto said he would “appraise the high commissioner of the facts”, namely that more than 330 people had died in the last three years and more than 1,300 people had been injured in Europe “due to the attacks of terrorists with a migrant background”.

The minister said illegal migration was considered a national security issue. The “Stop Soros” bill aims to stop and punish everyone who organises illegal migration with a view to “flooding Europe with migrants”.
