Brussels and the United Nations clearly share the goal of legalising illegal migration, Peter Szijjarto, Hungary’s foreign minister, said after a meeting of European Union foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday.

Illegal migrants have arrived in Europe in an organised way ever since 2015, Szijjarto told Hungarian reporters.

The past three years saw a constant fight between those who want to stop and those who want to organise migration, he said. The Hungarian government’s position has been consistent ever since the beginning: migration involves dangers and should be stopped, Szijjarto said.
