PM Sobotka says country can only take as many migrants as it can handle

06-06-2015

Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka has again addressed the issue of migrants from the Middle East and Africa, stressing that the Czech government cannot accept more migrants than the country can realistically handle. We must be in a position to guarantee that the migrants the country takes in will not cause security and social problems, the prime minister said. Czech government officials have repeatedly rejected the EC’s proposal for migrant quotas for EU member states, insisting that the country must be able to regulate the number of migrants it accepts.
