When the minister announced that the government would be building a fence on the Hungarian-Romanian border, he defined the length of the fence to as a “sensible distance”. The total length of the Hungarian-Romanian border is 443 km.

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán yesterday said that the Hungarian government is also planning to erect a fence at a “certain point” of the Hungarian-Croatian border.
