'We will not accept the refugees from North Africa and the Middle East because it is our sovereign decision. We significantly aid to reduce the tension at the eastern border of the EU and we accepted at least a few dozens or even hundreds of the thousands of the refugees from Ukraine', he said.
The current government will stick to the attitude demonstrated by 'Right and Justice' Party before the election in 2015 as Morawiecki specified.
Earlier the UN reported that about 107 000 people arrived in Europe through the Mediterranean Sea or land routes in the first half of 2017. The leaders of most EU countries agreed on the acceptation of the refugees by each country according to the quotas. At the same time, some countries, particularly Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic expressed their unwillingness to open the borders for the migrants.
