“We must assure that illegal immigrants do not interpret the European Union’s Mediterranean mission as an invitation”, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto in Vienna on Friday, at the meeting of EU foreign ministers, Kormany.hu reports.

He told Hungarian news agency MTI that "although the extension of the European Union’s Mediterranean mission was included on the agenda of the second day of talks, the discussion soon turned into a debate about migration”.

“The mission should not be an operation to transport migrants to European ports, but we must instead stick to the mission’s original mandate, which was to curb illegal immigration”, Szijjarto continued.
