Prime Ministers of Czechia, Slovakia and Austria speak against illegal migration

Illegal migration and the ongoing situation in Afghanistan were in focus during Tuesday’s meeting between Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš and his Slovak and Austrian counterparts Eduard Heger and Sebastian Kurz at Lednice Chateau, on the border between the three countries.

The three heads of government agreed that they are against illegal migration and do not want a repeat of the Migration Crisis of 2015. There was also consensus on the need to help Afghans in their own country or in states neighbouring Afghanistan. Austria’s Premier Sebastian Kurz said that his country is allocating EUR 18 million for this purpose.

Meanwhile, Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš said that the ruling regime in Belarus is currently using illegal migration as a tool of hybrid warfare – pointing to the ongoing situation on the EU’s border with the country.
