Bitter divisions within Europe over the migrant crisis will be aired on Monday when former Communist countries meet in Prague to state their opposition to Brussels-imposed quotas.
The so-called Visegrad Group of Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary will underline stark differences in approach when they meet with representatives from Luxembourg, the current holder of the EU presidency. Luxembourg is also the home of Jean-Claude Juncker, the head of the European Commission and architect of the migrant quota plan.
As well as repeating their opposition to Mr Juncker’s idea of compulsory quotas, the Visegrad group will demand the EU makes more effort to weed out economic migrants. They also intend to point out that Eastern Europe is neither financially or culturally suited to large migrant influxes.
