The reaction of European politicians to the latest attacks in Barcelona and Finland are “alarming”, Szijjártó said. After the condolences, European leaders usually move on to say “we won’t be intimidated and won’t let the lives of European citizens be changed”, he said.
These leaders “have lost their grasp on reality. If this is all they can do, Europe is in grave danger”, he said. Szijjártó said the summer attacks justify the Hungarian standpoint of keeping migrants outside Europe.
“Once they are allowed inside, Europe loses the battle”, he said. Thursday’s terror attack in Barcelona draws attention to the fact that the growing threat of terrorism in Europe affects all countries on the continent, Hungary’s foreign minister said on Friday, after the Barcelona attack.
A Hungarian citizen was slightly injured in Thursday’s terror attack in Barcelona.
