Szijjártó: Hungary Welcomes ‘Italy’s Commitment to Restoring Europe’s Security’
Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó told Matteo Salvini, the Italian interior minister, that Hungary’s government welcomes “the Italian government’s commitment to restoring European security”.
Italy’s government has shown that Europe’s borders, including the sea border, can be protected and people smuggling can be eliminated, state secretary Tamás Menczer said. The Italian government’s recent step has shown that “migration policy in Brussels falls short”. The European Union failed over the past three and a half years “to build up the capacity to defend Europe’s borders”.
Salvini, who heads the Northern League party, issued an order denying port to a migrant rescue boat on Saturday.
