MINSK, 26 August (BelTA) - The West has double standards towards migrants, member of the parliament of the Austrian federal state of Styria, member of the Leoben municipal council Dr. Werner Murgg said at a press conference in the House of Friendship on 26 August. The Austrian politician is on a visit to Belarus as part of the delegation of the Austria-Belarus Friendship Society, BelTA has learned.
“Today's situation with migrants on the border between the EU countries and Belarus is a vivid manifestation of double standards, which is characteristic of the European Union. After all, every refugee who has entered the territory of the European Union automatically gets the right to obtain the appropriate status. Here, all of a sudden, migrants who seek to enter the European Union with the aim of obtaining refugee status are expelled, not let in. They are deported even though they have already entered the European Union. This shows the EU's double standards,” Werner Murgg said.
