Hungary accuses Croatia of ‘dumping’ refugees

Budapest, Sep 20 (IANS) Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto accused Croatia of “dumping” refugees on Croatia-Hungary border.

Szijjarto on Saturday called the Croatian authorities “shameless” for lying about having had Budapest’s agreement in bringing refugees over the border to Hungary, Xinhua news agency reported.

He slammed Croatia for sending buses and trains packed with migrants over their joint border.

The Croatians have been lying to the Hungarian and European people when instead of providing care for the migrants, they have “dumped them in Hungary”, he said.

He made the remarks while addressing a news conference in Dunakeszi, just north of the Budapest city line.

Szijjarto called the move a serious violation of Hungary’s sovereignty and said Croatia had essentially “abandoned” its cooperation not only with Hungary but with whole of the Europe.
