Czech government earmarks financial aid to help deal with migrant crisis


The Czech Republic will give Bulgaria 20 million crowns to help protect the country’s border with Turkey should Ankara fail to keep its agreement with the EU and let loose a flood of refugees, Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said following Monday’s cabinet meeting. The Czech Republic previously donated 25 million crowns to Sofia to help the country deal with the impact of the migrant crisis. The government also earmarked 10 million crowns for Jordan, to help improve conditions in the country’s refugee camps.
