BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday the European Union's Bratislava summit had failed to change the bloc's immigration policy, which he called "self-destructive and naive."
He said that without Germany imposing a firm ceiling on the number of immigrants it is willing to take in, a "suction effect" would continue to draw masses to Europe. "Something must happen in that respect," he said.
Orban added that leaders of European nations along the Balkans migration route, including Austria and Germany, would meet in Vienna on Sept 24. to try to find a way forward.
