Poland will continue its approach of not accepting migrants from North Africa and the Middle East, the country’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said, stressing that Warsaw has taken large number of migrants from Ukraine. “We maintain firmly the position that was formed by the [ruling] Law and Justice party before the elections [more than two years ago] that we will not be accepting migrants from North Africa and the Middle East in Poland,” Morawiecki said as aired by the Polish television. At the same time, the minister pointed out that Poland was actively participating in “reducing tensions” on the European Union’s eastern borders. “[We] have already taken several ten or maybe several hundred thousands refugees from Ukraine,” Morawiecki noted. Poland has been among several other Eastern European countries, which have been opposing the EU mechanism of the relocation of migrants.
