Hungarian PM: EU should admit Bulgaria to Schengen to halt migrant influx

Baku, January 10, AZERTAC

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Bulgaria should be admitted to the Schengen Area in order for the EU to be able to deal more effectively with the ongoing refugee crisis, according to

Orban added in an interview for a public radio that the EU should establish a new frontier on the northern border of Greece in order to halt the migrant influx to Europe. In his opinion, the agreement between the EU and Turkey will not be enough to hold the refugee wave, Reuters quotes him as saying. According to the Premier, Macedonia should be provided with financial support and other assistance in order to reinforce its defences. Orban said that after welcoming a million migrants last year, Germany has recently shifted towards “common sense” and the country has started to enforce measures on slowing down the arrivals of refugees.
