Hungary’s prime minister says his country will not change its stance on immigration. Viktor Orban’s comments come after the EU’s top court dismissed a challenge by Hungary and Slovakia against migrant quotas.

“We must take note of the ruling as we cannot erode the foundation of the EU — and respect of law is the foundation of the EU — but at the same time this court ruling is no reason to change our policy which rejects migration,” Orban told state radio.

Responding to a letter by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Orban said that creating a link between immigration and EU cohesion funsing was against the EU’s rules, and was “immoral.”
