Visegrád Group calls for fast action to secure EU border

How to handle the refugee crisis and in particular the Western Balkan route used by refugees entering Europe through Greece was the topic of the second part of a 25th anniversary meeting of the Visegrád Group (V4), held in Prague on February 15.

Prime ministers of the V4 countries — Bohuslav Sobotka (Czech Republic), Beata Szydlová, (Poland), Viktor Orbán (Hungary) and Robert Fico (Slovakia) — met with Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov and Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov to discuss the topic.

The V4 ministers agreed that implementing policies at an EU level was the top priority for the year. They called for addressing the causes behind the migration wave, such as ending the war in Syria.
