PM Orbán was right about migration and deserves an apology: Die Presse

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was right when he warned about the migration crisis in 2015, and the manner in which handled it, which included building a fence and rejecting migration, is now being seen as the right choice in hindsight by other European powers, guest columnist Christian Ortner writes in conservative Austrian broadsheet Die Presse.

“Had the European Union handled 2015 [the migration crisis]as it now does in Greece, it would have spared Europe from the rise of extreme nationalism, dozens of Islamist attacks and a great deal of associated costs,” Ortner writes.

The Austrian columnist believes that Orbán deserves an apology from former Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann, who back in 2015 when Hungary began to build a fence on its southern border with Serbia, likened the Hungarian government to Hitler’s regime because of its handling of the migrant crisis.
