Europe needs a new approach to the solution of migration problems. Viktor Orban said that the days of the current composition of the European Commission “considered” and its mandate expires in may 2019, while noting the inefficiency of the migration decisions of the EC and comparing its members with reflex movements prepariamo frogs.
The head of the Cabinet of Ministers of Hungary said in an interview with radio MR1-Kossuth Radio also partially published by Reuters.
“The decisions and proposals of the European Commission resembles the last movement of the legs of the frogs in the experiments that we saw when I was in school. They don’t matter.
We need a new Commission with a new approach. We need a Commission that will punish countries that protect their borders, Hungary.”
In an interview with German newspaper Bild Viktor Orban also noted that all attempts to create a common immigration policy by the leadership of the European Union over the last few years proved unsuccessful.
“Migration policy is not a common task for the entire European Union. It is a question of national importance for each individual state. From 2015, they are trying to give this issue the General objectives of the EU – and fail.
If I started to pursue the same immigration policy as the Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel, I would be thrown out of the government. Borders must be protected. Each migrant who was rescued should go back to Africa. This is the only way to prevent large numbers of deaths at sea.
If we want to save lives, stop people on the southern shores of the Mediterranean sea, not to allow them to go on a hopeless journey.”
Babish: the problem of migration will be the main before the elections in the EU
The problem of migration in Europe will be important for voters in elections in the European Union in may next year and show that many voters will stick to anti-immigration positions, said Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Andrew Babish.
According to Babish, the problems in the borderless Schengen area will be more relevant than the problems in the Eurozone currency group.
“Everyone is talking about the Euro area that is really funny. We need to talk about the Schengen area”, – he said in an interview with Reuters.
This issue will also affect the Executive power of the EU, the European Commission, he said, adding that it is strange to realize that so many people want to discuss reforms in the Euro area and not in the Schengen zone, which covers most of the block.
Babish, who supports the principle of free movement, but wants to strengthen the borders around Europe, said that it is necessary to expand the Schengen zone to all EU countries on the continent including Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania.
The billionaire businessman Babish became the dominant political figure in the Czech Republic and easily won the election in October last year with promises to attract investment to the state, to defend the position of Brussels and to fight illegal migration.
