PRAGUE (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 23rd September, 2021) Prime ministers of the Czech Republic and Hungary noted on Wednesday that European Union's border protection policy was improper and hampered full prevention of illegal migration into Europe.
Babis agreed with his Hungarian counterpart and reiterated that his country was not ready to receive illegal migrants.
"The Czech Republic is not going to receive illegal migrants, but is ready to help them in their (home) countries," Babis said, adding that the main concern was migration flows from Afghanistan, Syria and Libya.
"Mr Prime Minister (Orban) asked me to allocate 50 policemen for aid to Hungarian border guards to protect the southern border from illegal migrants. The same happened in 2015, during the migration crisis in Europe. I will propose it to our government for approval," Babis told reporters.
In late August, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto described the developments in Afghanistan as a threat to his country, as Afghan refugees might get in Hungary through Turkey or Western Balkans. Czech Foreign Minister Jakub Kulhanek also said that Prague was not happy about Afghan migrants coming to Europe and expressed readiness to resolve the issues related to refugees to curb migration flows.
