EU Commission rebuts Orban's accusations over migration


BRUSSELS: The European Commission has issued a formal rebuttal to accusations via the Hungarian government that the EU is promoting mass migration.
EU spokeswoman Mina Andreeva said on Thursday that "the Hungarian government campaign distorts the truth and seeks to paint a dark picture of a secret plot to drive more migration to Europe."


In a point-by-point statement, the commission insists it isn't making plans to introduce obligatory resettlement quotas and it's running laborious to defeat human trafficking.


Andreeva said Hungarian citizens "deserve fact not fiction."


In the election marketing campaign of Prime Minister Viktor Orban, the Hungarian government despatched citizens a letter from the high minister that warns " the Brussels bureaucrats want to break the resistance of countries opposed to immigration."


The dispute comes 3 months ahead of the European elections.
