Warsaw (MTI) – The Visegrad Four grouping of Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia will set up a crisis management centre for handling migration, Hungary’s interior minister announced on Monday.
The centre will be headed by Poland, which currently holds the rotating presidency of the V4, Sándor Pintér told a press conference after a meeting of V4 interior ministers in Warsaw.
Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said the centre will coordinate measures by V4 member states aimed at aiding refugees in crisis-hit regions. It will also serve as a platform for sharing national measures aimed at tackling the migrant crisis with the rest of the group and for coordinating funds to be spent on these measures.
The meeting was also attended by the interior ministers of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovenia.
