Orban mocking EU' efforts on distributing migrants

Refugees "want to live a German life"

07 September, 11:26

(ANSA) - BUDAPEST - Hungary's prime minister has mocked the European Union's efforts to distribute migrants with a quota system and is casting Hungary as the "black sheep" standing up against EU leaders in contrast with the other countries in the "flock." Viktor Orban told a meeting of Hungarian diplomats on Monday that the EU migrant quota, which would distribute migrants among the bloc's 28 countries, makes no sense in a system where the free movement of people would make it impossible to enforce.

Orban said "How is this going to work? Has anyone thought this through?" Orban also said that migrants who had kept going after reaching safe countries like Turkey or Macedonia "want to live a German life. It has nothing to do with security." (ANSA).
