Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto announced that Hungary, Poland and Estonia will set up a warning mechanism to counter UN Global compact.
The Minister confirmed that he had
reached an agreement with Poland’s Interior Minister and his Estonian counterpart
to establish a system that will enable them to oppose pro-migration proposals
while in their early phases, whether they are brought up in the UN or in
“It has once again been made clear
that pro-migration forces want to make the United Nations’ global migration
compact, the world’s most dangerous migration document, mandatory,” Szijjarto
Poland’s Minister of Foreign Affairs
Urmas Reinsalu (Isamaa) explained that the three countries will begin
exchanging information on migration in order to counter new initiatives
stemming from the UN Global pact.
“The foreign affairs ministers
of Estonia and Hungary agreed that when it comes to international
migration-related matters, information would be exchanged in as early a phase
as possible, and that respective contact officials will be appointed
accordingly,” a Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson revealed on
“That is the goal of this
mechanism — to be aware as early on as possible of various international
initiatives regulating the field of migration and, accordingly, to get involved
in discussions in the early stages.”
At the UN General Assembly’s recent
vote on the implementation of the Global Migration Compact last December, 118
countries voted in favor of the document, 5 against it, with 13 abstentions and
57 countries not voting.
According to Szijjarto, United
States, Hungary, Poland and Israel rejected the compact last December and
Estonia joined the group after the recent voting.
The Minister added that the Visegrad
Group countries did not support the compact’s implementation, while the Czech
Republic abstained and Slovakia backed out from the most recent vote.
Szijjarto stressed the importance of fighting pro-migration proposals for the reason that anything approved by the UN automatically becomes part of international law and judicial practice.
