Gov't Official: Sweden’s Criticism Of Hungary’s Migration Policy ’Baseless’
The “pro-migration government” of Sweden has expressed “baseless criticism” over Hungary’s migration policy, foreign ministry state secretary for communication Tamás Menczer said.

The Swedish foreign minister has falsely claimed that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini stand against the principles of democracy, Menczer told public news channel M1.

The participants of Tuesday’s Italy-Hungary talks are true democrats because they represent the will of the European people when they fight against illegal migration, he added.

As the European parliamentary elections draw closer, politicians have been divided into two groups: those who support migration and those who want to stop it, Menczer said.

At the same time, the people of Europe are united in that they do not want illegal migrants, he added. In the recent period, voters expressed their will in national elections in Italy, Germany, Slovenia and Hungary, he said.
