HUNGARIAN leader Viktor Orban has launched an “important mission” to team up with Romania to block a major European migrant route.
Mr Orban has vowed to help Romania protect the European eternal border and is urging the country to build an “efficient bored barrier system”.
A new report issued by the Hungarian government revealed the partnership aiming to combat weaknesses on Europe’s eastern borders.
Mr Orban said: “Romania is an important country in this regard, and will have an important mission to stop the uncontrolled masses of migrants flowing to Europe at its eastern.”
He warned of “uncontrolled migrant masses flowing to Europe” and said Romania risked being “flooded”.
In this case, Mr Orban explained, Hungary would have no choice but to build a fence on the Romanian border.
The agency said: “The European Union’s 6,000-kilometre-long land border between Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine, the Russian Federation and its eastern Member States (Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania) presents significant challenges for border control.”
Hungary and Romania could also unite through Christianity, Mr Orban said in a recent interview, and pledged support for the Orthodox Church of Romania.
