Orbán: Migrants ‘should not get a single cent’ from EU budget
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in an interview on Friday that he does not support a European Union budget that takes money away from farmers, research and development and regional development, and gives it to countries that take in migrants.
Speaking to public radio, Orbán said the EU budget negotiations were expected to take a long time and he noted that a joint budget for seven years must be unanimously agreed on. “As long as Hungarians do not give the go-ahead, there’ll be no budget,” he said. Migrants, he added, should not be given “a single cent” and the relevant support should be provided by member states from their own budget. He added that he did not back curbing farm support.
