Orban calls for migrant quotas to be taken off EU agenda
Mandatory migrant quotas need to be taken off the European Union's agenda for good, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said after talks with his Slovak counterpart in Bratislava on Friday.
The Hungarian constitution has to be amended to declare that nobody can force any kind of mandatory resettlement quotas onto Hungarians, Orban told reporters after his talks with Robert Fico.
The prime minister said he had reassured Fico that Hungary's constitutional amendment would be in line with the EU's legal system.
A mandatory resettlement quota system without an upper limit could ruin "everything we have achieved and could destroy everything we have worked for," Orban said.
