Small revolt is brewing among EU nations

The European media, including Radio Free Europe, report that Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic - the so-called Visegrad Four countries - decided to boycott this weekend’s mini-summit on migration, saying it is not the appropriate format for such talks. They joined Italian PM who got upset that the result of the summit is already pre-decided by Merkel, who even wrote the "final declaration".
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has pressed for the emergency meeting on June 24 in Brussels ahead of a full EU summit on June 28-29.
Germany, Austria, France, Greece, Spain, Malta, the Netherlands, and Bulgaria are scheduled to attend.

We want to emphasize that the proper forum for discussion is the full European Council, which takes place a few days later. That is why we do not intend to participate in this process. - (translation)
