FM says Poland remains against relocation as EU refers Warsaw to court

December 7th, 2017

Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski on Thursday said the country remained "clear" in its disagreement with the European Union's decision to relocate refugees, after the European Commission referred Warsaw to the Court of Justice of the EU. The EC made the move earlier on Thursday, filing a case against Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic with the EU's top court for failing to comply with a decision to relocate refugees. Asked by reporters to comment on this development, the foreign minister said, "Nothing has changed in this matter". "Our position is clear: we disagree with the policy put forward by the EU two years ago." Waszczykowski's remark was echoed by his deputy, Jan Dziedziczak, who said that when it came to relocation, the government was "carrying out the wishes of the Polish public, in line with the law and the European spirit", while the previous cabinet's contrasting ideas on the refugee problem "received a scathing assessment from the Polish people".
