Slovakia is acting in line with the requests of the European Union, while still preparing a lawsuit concerning the mandatory quotas for the redistribution of refugees.

The first representative of the Slovak Migration Office is currently in Italy. The Interior Ministry claims that his task is to pick a number of the 200 refugees whom the Slovak government wants to voluntarily accept, the Sme daily wrote on October 15.

By sending an official, the Slovak government is fulfilling its obligation which the European Commission requires from it based upon the approved refugee quotas, Andrej Králik of the EC Representation to Slovakia said as quoted by the newspaper. However, the government of Robert Fico is still prepared to file a lawsuit against the Council of the European Union over the approved migration relocation quotas.
