Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán recorded the following video report early yesterday morning, after a grueling all-night session of the emergency EU summit on migration. Mr. Orbán reported that the dissident member states — primarily the Visegrád Four, Austria, and Italy — had managed to prevent the imposition of mandatory migrant quotas and other pillars of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s preferred immigration policies.

|0:00||Now it’s 4am and some minutes in the morning.|
|0:04||We just finished our work; we started in the afternoon.|
|0:08||Then, after a couple of hours of sleep,|
|0:12||we will continue. We are tired, but|
|0:16||satisfied, too, because the Visegrád Four have achieved a great victory!|
|0:20||There was a danger that from those “refugee camps”|
|0:24||they would distribute the migrants to all European countries.|
|0:28||We were able to counter that suggestion|
|0:32||by demanding the acceptance of our suggestion, which clearly states|
|0:36||that from those camps that will be created in the future, nobody|
|0:40||may be placed in another country without the agreement of the receiving|
|0:44||side. So Hungary will continue to avoid of the fate of becoming a migrant-accepting country.|
|0:48||Hungary will remain Hungary. That is the result of the battle from|
|0:52||yesterday (or dawn today ). We will continue tomorrow!
