Austria follows Visegrad’s lead, will not accept the call to relocate migrants from Greece.
The government called the EU migrant quota scheme a failure and that any new programs will only serve to lure millions of more migrants to Europe.
“If the European Union allows these people to enter, millions will be on their way,” said PM Sebastian Kurz last month.
“If we take in the people who Erdoğan sends to the border, it won’t stay at 13,000. Then millions of people will set off,” he explained.
Austria sent special police forces to Greece to help local authorities maintain the border and repel illegals during the Turkish-led invasion last month.
* Visegrad, Austria and others need to start putting the pressure on Germany and France to halt their negligent actions to resettle migrants.
This is counterproductive and puts pressure on all of Europe. Relocation must focus on sending the illegals back to their countries of origin.
