Orban: Hungarians are not "stone-hearted" towards migrants



WARSAW, Poland — Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Monday that his country’s strong opposition to allowing migrants into Europe doesn’t mean that Hungarians have hearts of stone.

On a visit to Warsaw, Orban and his Polish counterpart, Mateusz Morawiecki, defended their refusal to accept refugees, a stance that has put them in conflict with the European Union.


Both men cast the EU attempts to redistribute migrants across the member states as violations of their national sovereignty.

“Here in Poland, it’s we who decide who will come to Poland and who will not,” Morawiecki said.
