The V4 countries agreed on second defense line could protect properly the Schengen Area borders. According to Hungarian officials it also means that V4 “affirmed their faith in a joint European position against migration”, supporting a different concept of managing migration.

“The summit declared the need to protect the EU’s external borders, and to enlarge the European Union by accepting Serbia and Macedonia”, said Government Spokesperson Zoltan Kovacs. He also added that according to V4, Bulgaria has been successful in protecting the borders, therefore they support its accession to the Schengen Area.

In Hungary's opinion the Brussel management of migration crisis hasn't been productive, that's why a so-called B plan was needed.

As PM Viktor Orban said at the summit, Hungary's opinion on migration hadn't changed, it still says “wave of migration must be controlled, and it must be halted”.
