The Austrian Freedom Party has reached its best ever result at the local elections in Vienna. Chairman of the party, Heinz-Christian Strache told Magyar Hírlap, he would give all help to Hungary’s border protection if he was the chancellor of Austria.

In an interview with Magyar Hírlap, Heinz-Christian Strache said that the Austrian voters clearly told the government to end the discrimination against the Freedom Party (FPÖ). Regarding the numerous insults of the Austrian chancellor, Werner Faymann, he said ”Hungarybashing has become the socially accepted form of xenophobia nowadays”. Strache emphasized that as chancellor he would give all the support to Hungary in order to defend the European external borders.

The Austrian politician said we must strictly protect our borders and clearly tell those, who have no right for asylum, to leave. Instead of quotas Strache thinks that the EU must determine a maximum number of refugees it can accept. ”Any other solution would put a burden on our job market, healthcare, education and social system, and also endanger safety and order in Austria”, he emphasized.

Strache said that integration of non-European immigrants has clearly failed. According to the politician immigrants from Hungary, Poland or Serbia integrated perfectly and didn’t forget their roots, while non-Europeans form parallel societies.
