Govt spox: NYT editors 'still don't get it' on migrant crisis

September 12th, 2017

Government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs has hit back at New York Times, which criticised Hungary for its migration policy in a weekend editorial, saying they "really still don't get it". In a blog entry on the spokesman's official website posted on Monday, Kovacs said the government of Viktor Orban had "built a fence on the southern border of Hungary because it’s an external border of the European Union’s Schengen Area." "It was not simply “to tighten his border,” as they say, but to defend Europe and uphold treaty obligations, which include preventing illegal immigration into the EU," he wrote.
