BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary will quit the United Nations migration pact before its final approval, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Wednesday, adding that the accord posed a "threat to the world".

"This document is entirely against Hungary's security interests," Szijjarto told a news conference.

The accord is to be formally adopted in December, but Hungary will not take part at the Morocco meeting, Szijjarto said, adding that the country would also oppose the pact should it come up for a vote in the General Assembly.
