EU rebels Poland, Hungary show united front

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban criticised the EU's migration policy during a joint press conference on Wednesday (3 January).

“The dial is turning in our direction,” Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said in Budapest, showing a united front with Orban in his first bilateral trip since being appointed last month.

The European Union is taking Hungary, Poland and also the Czech Republic to court over their refusal to accept EU mandatory quotas for asylum-seekers decided by a majority of member states in 2015.

“Member states must decide who they what to let in,” Morawiecki said, adding that there were signs in recent elections in Europe that immigration is becoming “an even hotter potato”.

“In terms of migration and quotas that were to be imposed on (EU) member countries we strongly reject such an approach as it infringes on sovereign decisions of member states,” Morawiecki told a joint news conference after talks with Orban in Budapest.
