Hungary ready to build fence on border with Romania

The chief of staff of Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has announced his country is ready to build a fence on its border with Romania to keep out migrants and there is a good chance that this cannot be avoided.

“We are ready to erect a technical barrier on the Romanian border as well… today there is significant chance that this cannot be avoided,” Janos Lazar told a news conference on February 18.

As reported by the Reuters news agency, Lazar also said Hungary and the other Central European countries respected a proposal that the flow of migrants should be primarily tackled on the borders of Greece.

“The real debate is about whether we help the Balkans countries or not,” Lazar said, adding that if there was no second line of defence between Greece and the Schengen border, then Europe would leave Balkans countries on their own.
