MTI-Hungary Today 2020.01.15.

The Hungarian government expects the debates within the European Union on the issues of migration and the rule of law to continue, the prime minister’s chief domestic security advisor said on Tuesday.

Hungary will do everything it can to make sure the EU breaks with the flawed policy it has pursued on migration and trusts that the new European Commission will set a new course on the issue, György Bakondi told public news channel M1.

Meanwhile, he said that some 1,900 people have attempted to enter Hungary illegally so far this year, the highest-ever number of illegal border crossing attempts recorded for January. The government expects that trend to continue, Bakondi added.
