Hungary's prime minister says that Europe should shut its borders to migrants and not let anyone in without registration and permission.

Speaking Monday upon his arrival to an EU summit in Brussels, Viktor Orban said that any plan to resettle people from Turkey or Greece would only add "fuel to the fire" and cause even more people to come.

Orban said that Hungary wouldn't participate in any resettlement plan and that "nothing should be done without the closing of the borders."

He also said that Ukrainians should be given EU visas exemptions before any similar deal with Turkey, which is being offered billions of euros (dollars) in refugee aid, fast-track EU membership and an easing of visa rules to win its support for efforts to stem the migrant flow.
