Hungary slams 'groundless' French criticism of border barrier

Migrants jump over a razor-wire fence at the Hungarian-Serbian border of Roszke village on August 30, 2015Hungary on Sunday lashed out at French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius over his criticism of the country’s new anti-migrant border barrier, accusing him of “shocking and groundless” judgements. In an interview with French radio Sunday morning Fabius said the razor-wire barrier, which runs the length of Hungary’s border with Serbia, does “not respect Europe’s common values”. Fabius also called “scandalous” the attitude of “a certain number of European countries, particularly in the east” who oppose a quota scheme for the distribution of migrants across EU member states.
