The Latest: Official: Hungary won't take in fleeing Afghans

A Hungarian official on Monday criticized the pullout of American-led forces from Afghanistan and said Hungary will not take in refugees fleeing the country after its takeover by the Taliban.

Levente Magyar, state secretary with Hungary's foreign ministry, told state news agency MTI that the government would not make Hungarians pay for the "flawed geopolitical decision" of the U.S. military withdrawal by accepting refugees "without any kind of restrictions."

Hungary's right-wing government is a staunch opponent of immigration, and in 2015 built a fence along its southern border in response to an influx of refugees from the Middle East and Africa.
