* Czech Republic: President Zeman tells his German counterpart that Czechs will not be participating in the relocation scheme. Zeman also rejected the EU’s “euros for migrants” program, which indirectly promotes human trafficking by attempting to bribe leaders into accepting migrants who should instead be sent back to their countries of origin.
– President Zeman told Germany’s Frank-Walter Steinmeier that he has strong doubts about the compatibility of the Muslim culture with the European culture. He also dismissed the absurd allegation that the Czechs did not show solidarity during the migrant crisis, adding that the Czech Republic was assisting the refugees closer to their homes in the spheres of power supplies, water sources, schools, hospitals and other areas.
** Interior Minister Milan Chovanec also informed the EU’s Minister of Migration, Dimitris Avramopoulos, that the Czech Republic would not be accepting any migrant quotas. This was in response to the arrogant and ignorant comments from officials in Italy and Germany. In a fit of hypocrisy, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni reminded Czechs that EU laws and regulations are valid for all members. Yet, it is Italy who surrendered the border and refused to secure the external border, which, unlike forced migrant quotas, is an obligation under EU treaties.
Chovanec stated, “The Czech Republic is one of the most active countries in helping to deal with this crisis. We have sent out experts to migrant hotspots, thousands of our officers have helped patrol borders where needed and we have sent millions of crowns in aid to countries such as Jordan and Turkey. So if the commissioner sees fit to criticize us for not taking in migrants, he should also recognize our merit in helping in other ways. Otherwise, it is merely bullying from Brussels.”
While the EU Core leaders pontificate with each other over their self-proclaimed “greatness”, all of the V4 countries have been active in protecting the borders and sending experts to countries with large refugee camps.
Since 2015, the Czech Republic had sent 68 experts to the hotspots to help with the registration of migrants, over 5,000 Czech police officers have helped protect the borders of Hungary, Serbia, Slovenia and other states and the Czech Republic has sent 640 million crowns in aid to Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon to help deal with the migrant crisis.
*** The V4 countries were right from the beginning. The most efficient way to help the refugees without sacrificing national security was to secure the border and assist the refugees closer to their homes. Angela Merkel’s reckless decision to open the borders and promote “relocation” has been a disaster for all and exposed many Europeans to great risks.
Only the cultural Marxists in Brussels could think of such an odious plan to bribe EU leaders into accepting “euros for migrants”. The EU Core’s desperation is a sign that their time is near the end.
Onward V4! Stay strong and united.
