Kovács: Hungary has been made a ‘scapegoat’

Tourism

Hungary’s government spokesperson Zoltán Kovács objected to Hungary being made the “scapegoat” of Europe’s migrant crisis, a mantle he rejects on behalf of the country, the spokesperson said in an interview with BBC Newsnight yesterday.

“Thereʼs no time to try to find a scapegoat, and that is why we reject that Hungary is being pointed out as a scapegoat in this whole story,” the spokesperson said. “What we are really hoping for, since April of this year, is to have a completely renewed approach to migration and the refugee system. The system that was designed years ago has completely failed, itʼs falling apart. It is not able to handle these numbers.” Kovács added.

The full interview can be viewed in the video below.
