The Hungarian Ministry of Defense, last night called in reserve personnel for military service due to an increasing pressure from migrants and refugees at the border.
The reservist mission is primarily to take over tasks at the army barracks, as thousands of soldiers are now deployed to secure the country's borders with Serbia and Croatia, the government writes on its website.
The government states that the country is in a "state of crisis caused by mass migration" and that the operation "Decisive action 2015", which is the working name for the operation, is to secure the country's borders over a more extended period.
On Monday, the Greek ambassador in Budapest was summoned to the Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szíjjártó to get a good scolding. Hungary puts much of the blame for the asylum chaos on Greece, claiming that the Greek government is lying when they say that they guard the border with Turkey.
- If so, why is it that more than 202,000 illegal immigrants come to Hungary this year? asks Szíjjártó.
- It would be good if the Greek Government stopped deceiving the European people and instead took real measures to protect its borders and started registering immigrants, he continued.
In recent days, the Hungarian government has also verbally attacked Croatia, which tries to bus immigrants to Hungary. Among other things, they called the Croatian government "pathetic" and pointed out that it is their duty to ensure their borders.
