Polish ambassador to EU calls proposal "counterproductive"

Polish authorities have rejected measures proposed by the European Commission (EC) to resolve the situation with migrants on the border with Belarus. Extending the registration and processing of asylum applications is counterproductive. According to Polish Ambassador to the European Union Andrzej Sadoś, the process of granting asylum to migrants must be completely stopped.

Due to the influx of migrants, primarily from the Middle East, near the EU's external borders with Belarus, the European Commission has proposed Poland, Lithuania and Latvia to introduce temporary - for the next six months - measures to facilitate asylum. If Brussels' proposal is accepted, EU countries will be able to increase the registration period for asylum applications to four weeks instead of the current 3 to 10 days, at strictly defined border checkpoints. This will allow to check the application directly at the border, and the duration of the whole procedure can be up to 16 weeks.

According to the Polish ambassador to the European Union, these measures will only lead to an "excessive burden" on Poland, Latvia and Lithuania when considering asylum applications.

"The European Commission has taken a decision that is completely contrary to what we have proposed. We have proposed that the response to the hybrid attack be the possibility of terminating asylum procedures, rather than extending their terms," ​​he said.

As it was reported, on November 8 on the Polish-Belarusian border a large number of migrants was noticed. After that, the Belarusian regime tried many times to help illegal immigrants get to Poland.

Every day migrants attack the Polish border, but they fail to break through.
