Govt Spox on Article 7 Hearing: Revenge by Pro-migration Forces

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.09.16.

Monday’s EU ministerial hearing about Hungary will be a kind of revenge by pro-migration forces in the European Parliament that make every effort to attack the country, the government spokesman said on Sunday.

There are pro-migration forces in the governments of European Union countries that want to take revenge on Hungary, Zoltán Kovács told public radio Kossuth referring to the forthcoming ministerial meeting which will hear, on Finland’s initiative, a representative of the Hungarian government. The hearing will be part of an Article 7 procedure launched by the EU against Hungary over rule-of-law concerns.

Left-liberal pro-migration forces are trying to overrule the Christian system of values. One can hardly dare to talk about “the protection of Christianity” in Brussels these days and the new ideology focuses on the protection of migrants, Kovács said.
