Szijjarto: Hungary Germany's 'most loyal' EU peer

December 7th, 2017

The 800 million euros Hungary has spent on border protection makes it Germany's "most loyal European country", the Hungarian foreign minister said in Vienna on Thursday. Szijjarto reacted to recent remarks by German Social Democrat (SPD) leader Martin Schulz, who said "Hungary is getting further and further away from the EU". In remarks to MTI, Szijjarto said that had Hungary not invested in border protection, "many more than 1.5 million migrants" would have come to Europe and "the vast majority would certainly have ended up in Germany". He added the Hungarian government had spent that sum on the border rather than on the economy, "saving Germany from further burdens".
