Any idiot can put up a barbed-wire fence
Speaking at a press conference in Zagreb on Thursday, Croatia’s Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic said that erecting a barbed-wire fence between two EU nations “isn’t normal”, and such a thing would go down in history as the most “humiliating and shameful” act of the 21st century.
Milanovic said Hungary’s political elite is playing a game that offends his own human sensibilities and he will continue to raise his voice against it.
“It’s easy to put up a barbed-wire fence,” he said. “Croatia could put one up in two weeks but I don’t want to live in that kind of a Europe.”
Any idiot can hate refugees
Spain’s Foreign Minister, José Manuel García-Margallo, said on Thursday that Hungary has no intention of showing solidarity with the refugees.
Szijjártó fires back
Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó fired back at both statements in the same press release!
Szijjártó said it is “unacceptable” that Milanovic continues to use “sharp language” against Hungary.
“We reject these accusations,” he said.
“The Croatian prime minister is probably anxious about the elections taking place in his country and he’s nervous because his government failed the first real Schengen test,” Szijjártó wrote.
Szijjártó takes Spain to the dog house!
“[Hungary] didn’t expect this criticism from Spain because there’s no reason for it and we can’t see what would’ve caused it. This year more than 333,000 immigrants arrived in Hungary and taking care of them is a burden for our homeland. Hungary abides by all international law and we show our solidarity with Europe when we protect the European Union and the Schengen Zone’s external borders,” Szijjártó said in a statement given to Hungary’s state-run news service.
