Minister raises specter of terror attack in Hungary
Despite Hungary “doing everything” it can to prevent a possible terror attack from happening in the country, such an event could still occur here “at any time,” Hungary’s Minister of Defense István Simicskó said yesterday at a press conference in Eger, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.
Without substantiating his claims, the minister noted that in certain European countries, the ratio of what he termed “immigrants” exceeds 50% of the total population, according to the MTI report. He added that events in the last year and a half have “clearly proven that the migrant flow and immigration is connected with terrorism,” and that the terror threat has risen Europe-wide, the MTI report adds.
The minister emphasized that in this light, Hungary’s upcoming referendum on the EU’s settlement quotas on October 2 has “crucial significance.”
