Hungarian Prime Minister Orban Offers West Route for Migrants
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has offered Western European countries to allow migrants to go to the West along a unique route.
“If you need them, take them,” Orbán said in an interview. According to observers, the prime minister refers to a route from the Serbian to the Austrian border.
Hungary had many more asylum seekers per thousand inhabitants in 2015 than most other EU countries. However, Orbán’s government has now made it virtually impossible to obtain asylum in the country.
Migrants are mainly stopped at the southern border with Serbia and immediately sent back. But according to Orbán, his country can also create a corridor for those migrants to move on to western Europe.
