There is no question that the thousands of illegal migrants arriving to the continent on a daily basis without any sort of control have increased the terror threat in Europe, Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said today, commenting on the explosions that took place in Brussels this morning, according to an announcement by the ministry.

Szijjártó stressed that the Hungarian government is concerned about the safety of Hungarian citizens and all the necessary measures taken by the government to date have been in support of this aim, the press statement says. 

He added that for the time being reports have surfaced on two Hungarian casualties, whose injuries are not serious and that they are being treated. The foreign ministry said in its statement that it has been maintaining contact with them. Belgian authorities will provide further information on the condition of casualties to the respective embassies.
