“Migration-based” economic and social policies have regularly failed in Europe in recent years, the minister said.
They have led to “parallel societies” which exacerbated social tensions and security risks, he said, while failing to yield the expected economic benefits.
Migration has failed to solve labour shortages in western European countries, he said. Meanwhile, Hungary has achieved an economic growth allowing a large-scale support scheme of families, Szijjártó said.
The Hungarian government sees the support of families as the right answer to the demographic and labour market challenges Europe, and in particular its central region, are facing, he said.
The Hungarian model, “through enormous efforts”, has preserved the country’s security and helped to “take the help where the troubles are”, the minister said.
The Hungarian government finds it unacceptable that Brussels or New York puts the country under pressure, Szijjártó said.
