Hungary’s Foreign Minister, Péter Szijjártó, has hit out at Europe’s unprotected borders – saying Europe’s security is now completely at the mercy of Turkey.
“Turkey has terminated the re-admittance agreement it had previously concluded with Greece, meaning that from now on Turkey will not be re-admitting illegal immigrants from Greece,” Szijjártó told the Hungarian MTI news agency.
“If the EU-Turkey agreement suffers the same fate as the Greece-Turkey agreement, then another very major wave of migration could set out along the Western Balkan migration route, and hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants could arrive at Hungary’s southern border within a very short period of time.
Szijjártó explained that there were “extremely concerning developments south of Europe” with tens of thousands of migrants now heading towards Central and Western Europe.
“Europe’s security is exclusively dependent on the goodwill of the Turks; Europe’s borders remain unprotected,” he declared.
Over the weekend, Turkey’s President Erdoğan warned of a ‘holy war’ in Austria after the country decided to close down mosques linked to extremists and expel their imams.
“Austria’s decision to close down mosques is leading the world towards a war between the Crusaders and the Crescent,” Erdoğan said at the weekend.
“They want to throw out our religious representatives from Austria. That means we will also take action,” he added.
Last year Erdoğan warned that “no European in any part of the world can walk safely on the streets” after several countries banned Turkish officials from campaigning on their soil.
Europeans should ignore Hungary at their peril on this…
