Prime Minister Morawiecki: "this is coercion"

Niezalezna(.)pl:  "If a country has to pay a penalty, a member state has to pay a fine of twenty-two thousand euros for a migrant who has not been admitted, it is de facto coercion," said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki after the EU summit, during which the issue of relocation of migrants was raised, and the issue of which failed to reach a consensus.

The head of government said at Friday's press conference in Brussels that the EU summit was devoted to the issues of security, stability and peace. - "Security on our borders and inside our countries, peace, public order - these are the values ​​from which everything else begins. Values ​​from which the possibility of doing business and normal social life begins," said the head of the Polish government.

He noted that the opening of borders must take into account basic security needs. "That is why Poland has adhered to our position, which was defined as the consensus of the European Council in 2018, confirmed in 2019, and to this day is the binding canon of political decisions that other institutions should follow," the Prime Minister said.
