Quotes from the news wire:
The issue (of resettlement) will be a hot potato in the coming period because even though this could be kept in a semi-secret state... someone somewhere - I think in Berlin this week - will announce that 4-500,000 Syrian refugees could be brought straight from Turkey to the EU, this nasty surprise still awaits Europeans.
The pressure will be intense on us and the other Visegrad Four countries (Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic), they will portend that once the agreement is made by certain parties - and to avoid diplomatic complications I will not tell you which country Berlin is in - we should not only bring these people to Europe but divide them amongst ourselves, as an obligation.
I would like to thank the Hungarian police because in recent days there has been a de facto rebellion among illegal migrants, they occupied a railway station, they refused to be fingerprinted, they did not cooperate and they refused to enter facilities where they could receive care, such as food, water, shelter or medical treatment. They have rebelled against Hungarian law.
Considering that we are facing a rebellion by illegal migrants, police have done their job in a remarkable way, without using force, they have seized railway stations, refused to give fingerprints, failed to cooperate, and are unwilling to go to places where they would get food, water, accommodation and medical care ... They have rebelled against Hungarian legal order.
If we would create ... an impression that 'just come because we are ready to accept everybody', that would be a moral failure. The moral, human thing is to make clear: Please don't come, turkey is a safe country. Stay there. It's risky to come. It's better for the family, for the kids, for yourself to stay.
We don't want to, and I think we have a right to decide that we do not want a large number of Muslim people in our country, we do not like the consequences of having a large number of Muslim communities that we see in other countries and I do not see any reason for anyone else to force us to create ways of living together in Hungary that we do not want to see. That is a historical experience for us.
We are convinced that locking Russia out of Europe is not rational, whoever thinks that Europe can be competitive, that the European economy can be competitive without economic cooperation with Russia, whoever thinks that energy security can exist in Europe without the energy that comes from Russia, is chasing ghosts.
