Austria urges Hungary to scrap suspension of Dublin III Regulation
Following the Hungarian governmentʼs announcement late yesterday that it unilaterally suspended the Dublin III Regulation, Austria urged Hungary to scrap the suspension and continue welcoming back asylum seekers.
After the government announced it would suspend the regulation, the European Commission demanded immediate explanation from Hungary.
Austria’s minister of interior Johanna Mikl-Leitner (pictured) told Austrian news agency APA that those who want to live in a Europe without borders need to keep to the borders of Schengen and abide by the Dublin III Regulation. She added that Austria is ready to help Hungary in this “difficult situation” in reference to the influx of migrants to the country. “Austria sends 40 police officers to the Hungarian-Serbian border; it is obvious that help like this cannot be unilateral” APA cited the interior minister.
According to APA, János Perényi, ambassador of Hungary in Austria was summoned by the Austrian ministry of interior.
