Hungary PM Warns Against Eroding Free Movement for EU Citizens
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Europe must focus on preserving the free movement of EU citizens as its leaders make plans to overhaul the bloc, reported Reuters.
Orban, a fierce critic of perceived bureaucratic over-reach from the European Union, said proposals to tighten labor rules and internal border controls jeopardize significant achievements in the European project.
“While we make grand plans about the future of Europe the Schengen system (of border-free movement within the EU) is crumbling away in our hands,” he told state radio. “We have free movement of labor and we (some EU leaders) plan to restrict it.”
