Hungary says it will use force if Turkey attempts to push migrants from Syria into Europe
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has vowed to “use force” to protect the country’s borders after Turkey threatened to unleash a wave of immigrants into Europe, French TV network Euronews reported.Turkey should be punished for its aggression in Syria. People should be sanctioning Turkey for the actions of Erdogan instead of focusing their anger on Trump. Why isn't the UN taking action against Turkey?
The statement came after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s threatened to “open the gates and send 3.6 million” migrants over to Europe.
“If Turkey sets off further hundreds of thousands on top of this, then we will need to use force to protect the Hungarian border and the Serbian-Hungarian frontier and I do not wish for anyone that we should need to resort to that,” Prime Minister Orbán said.
President Erdogan threatened to open up the floodgates and swarm Europe with migrants after European leaders criticized Turkey for launching a military offensive against the Kurdish forces in neighboring Syria. Following the U.S. troops withdrawal, the Turkish army invaded northern Syria to target the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The U.S.-allied SDF, a coalition of Kurdish, Assyrian Christians, and Arabs fighters, played a key role in pushing back the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.
