Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło has said the nation will resist “blackmail” from the European Union over forced asylum seeker redistribution and continue with its “sensible” migration policy.
“Poland will continue a prudent and reasonable immigration policy; I am resistant to blackmail and pressure, which are used by, among others, Brussels,” Prime Minister Szydło told a press conference on Wednesday.
“Since we took power in Poland, the government under my direction has made it clear that we will not accept such a solution because we recognize it as a bad thing, especially for Europe,” Ms. Szydło added.
The Central European premier made the comments following Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski stating it would not be possible for the bloc to financially punish Poland for rejecting asylum seekers under the EU’s migrant policy.
