Czech Interior Minister Milan Chovanec has said the EU must have a plan B in case the EU agreement with Turkey on stemming the flow of refugees to Europe should collapse. The Czech interior minister made the statement following a meeting with his Slovak and Austrian counterparts, Robert Kalinak and Wolfgang Sobotka, in Prague on Friday. The ministers all stressed the need for Europe to be prepared for such a possibility and be able to prevent a mass wave of refugees through the so-called Western Balkans route.
