Gov’t of Hungary responds to criticism over handling of refugee crisis

September 28, 2015


Budapest Beacon readers wishing to understand the Hungarian government’s position on the refugee crisis may care to peruse the following articles appearing on the government’s English-language website since the beginning of September.

We encourage our readers to look beyond the headlines, lest they get the impression that Hungary’s foreign policy is facing an unprecedented public relations disaster.  

Without wishing in any way to prejudice readers, we note that when the government isn’t complaining about being attacked by foreign governments, the media and international organizations, it sends mixed messages such as “We are in the same boat as Austria” and “Hungary and Serbia are in the same shoes“.
