Hungary wants the European Council to accept the position that migration should be stopped rather than managed, Zoltan Kovacs, the state secretary for international communications and relations, said during a visit to London on Monday. "Hungary is also firm on respecting the sovereignty of [European Union] member states and removing double standards," he told MTI, briefing on discussion of the new strategy framework by the EU heads of government and state. Respecting the basic ideas and practice of Christian culture on which the ethos of the European Union is based is key to fulfilling Hungary's standpoint on sovereignty and migration, he added. The right of every EU member state to create its own economic policy mix should also be recognised, he said.
