"Tangible proof" has surfaced indicating that several committed supporters of the UN's migration compact want to make the pact mandatory for every EU member state, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto told a press conference on the sidelines of a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday. A "secret document" has been published on work by the European Commission's legal service to formulate "lengthy and devious" legal grounds for suggesting that the compact is, after all, mandatory for EU member states, he said. Although the document was not released the way the EC would have wanted it to be, Szijjarto said, the commission "has confirmed its existence". "It is Hungary's clear conviction that the package is not binding," the minister added.
