BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — The latest news as tens of thousands of people slip into Europe and head to wealthy European Union countries in search of a better life. All times local.
Hungary’s prime minister says he believe a secret pact led by Germany to bring up to 500,000 Syrians from Turkey directly into the European Union to be revealed soon.
Viktor Orban said Wednesday that a similar idea was rejected recently by European national leaders but that “the cat will be out of the bag” and the scheme will be announced in Berlin as soon as this week.
Orban says “this secret agreement exists and we will be confronted by it in the coming days.”
He says the plan includes forcing all EU countries to take in some migrants, even if they are opposed to mandatory quotas.
Orban said there will be “huge pressure” on countries like Hungary and others to take part.
