Hungarian PM called refugees “Muslim invaders”

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán once again declared that his country was not going to accept refugees from the Middle East, German’s Welt informs with reference to Orbán’s interview to Bild. 

“We don’t see these people as Muslim refugees. We see them as Muslim invaders,” Hungarian PM declared. He called these people economic migrants seeking for better life. 

Budapest’s refusal to accept refugees contradicts the decision of the Council of the European Union and the Court of Justice of the European Union. 

In his interview, Orbán also addressed the leader of the Social Democratic Party of Germany Martin Schulz with the request to respect Hungary more. Last week, Schulz criticized Hungarian PM for his refugee policy and for the problems with the freedom of mass media and opinion.
