Hungary’s foreign minister has summoned the French ambassador after the French foreign minister’s criticism of Hungary’s so-called anti-migrant fence.

Laurent Fabius said Hungary did not “respect the common values of Europe” by erecting barriers at its border.

The meeting was scheduled to begin on Monday (August 31) as more than 2,500 refugees and migrants on board a ship from the Greek island of Lesbos arrived in Piraeus port near Athens. Meanwhile, several people broke free from a Hungarian refugee camp near the Serbian border over the weekend. Police detained three of them.

In all, since January, 140,000 people, including a large number of Syrians, Iraqis or Afghans fleeing war, crossed the border.
