Hungary’s prime minister says accepting Syrian refugees ‘also means importing terrorism, criminalism anti-Semitism and homophobia’
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has recently gained notoriety for his rhetoric and policies toward the ongoing refugee crisis. His country has erected a steel fence along Hungary’s southern border to keep out refugees — a policy that has now been adopted by other Balkan nations.
In an interview conducted by Kai Diekmann, the publisher of the German news publication BILD and a Business Insider contributing editor, several topics are discussed with Viktor Orban.
The topics range from the referendum request regarding the migration crisis to the Prime Minister’s view of a European Union made of “the totality of national interests”. They also discuss his relation with Germany policy in the EU, which includes his definition as one of “Helmut Kohl’s political pupils” as well as his opposition to Angela’s Merkel concerning the opening of borders and welcoming of refugees, leading him to be seen as Europe’s “bogeyman”.
