Hungary government reiterates anti-migration stance following EPP demands

BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary’s government will not yield on its anti-migration stance, its spokesman on Wednesday, following demands by the European People’s Party for Budapest to backtrack on anti-EU rhetoric.

“We listen to other opinions, including (EPP group leader Manfred) Weber’s,” Zoltan Kovacs wrote on Twitter. “But more important than party discipline are the defence of European Christian values and stopping migration. On this, we cannot yield.”

He added that the Central European University operated undisturbed in Budapest and would not receive special under the law.
