Visegrad Group and Austria want migrant centers outside the EU
“Austria and Visegrad Group countries want migrant centers outside the EU”, said Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban after a meeting in Budapest. Viktor Orban said that Austria and the countries of the Visegrad Group (Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland) agree that protection of the external EU border and EU citizens is necessary. He expressed hope that after the Austria’s EU Presidency, the Union will be much safer.
It was announced that Visegrad Group members will not attend an unofficial mini-summit of the European Union on migrants scheduled for Sunday in Brussels because they believe that the EU Council, and not the European Commission, should organize the EU Summit on the subject. Donald Tusk scheduled the EU Summit for June 28, and one of the agenda items will be migration.
