    "Hungary's parliament obliged the government in a law passed on Tuesday (16 November 2015) to challenge the EU decision on mandatory refugee relocation quotas in court next month."

    "Hungary voted against the scheme together with the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Romania at an EU meeting in September, Finland abstained."

    "The plan is to relocate120,000 asylum seekers from Italy and Greece across the EU to help share the burden of the EU states where most migrants and refugees first arrive to the continent."

    15 February 2016, Budapest:
    "The Hungarian government’s position is very simple: for us, the most important thing is that we are able to protect the security of the Hungarian people, and we are convinced that it is our duty to prevent ourselves from being forced into accepting people whom we Hungarians do not want to live alongside. To this end we have mobilised Hungarian society; this is because the Government’s determination is important, and perhaps even worthy of recognition, but in itself it will not be enough to counter the adoption of the compulsory resettlement quota, such is the pressure which Hungary has been subjected to in recent years and which it will continue to be subjected to in future. And so we must mobilise Hungarian society, and we have collected signatures: the signatures of 1.8 million people, who have called on the Government to continue its policy of opposing the compulsory resettlement quota."
