Orbán and Former PM Abbott Agree on Need of Strict Border Protection

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.09.05.

Migration and border protection were in the focus of talks between Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and former Australian PM Tony Abbott in Budapest on Thursday, the prime minister’s press chief said.

Both agreed that every country had the right to determine whom they allow to enter its territory and with what conditions, Bertalan Havasi said.

Europe should follow the Australian and Hungarian practice of border control if it is serious about protecting its own citizens, Orbán and Abbott agreed at their meeting.

Abbott is in Hungary to attend the 3rd Budapest Demography Summit.
