Slovakia Will Not Support UN Migration Pact Under Any Circumstances, Prime Minister Says

Paul Dijks, Voice of Europe, November 25, 2018

Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini announced after the European Union Summit on Sunday that Slovakia will NOT support the United Nations Global Migration Compact.

“Slovakia will not support this United Nations pact under any circumstances and will not agree with it,” Pellegrini said after the meetings.

The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration is set to be signed in Marrakech in December.

The rejection of the migration pact could pose problems for Pellegrini’s government as Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak, who was President of the United Nations General Assembly when the migration pact was adopted, threatened to resign if the government rejects the agreement.

Pellegrini has faith that Lajcak will stay even though they are rejecting the pact, “I will do everything I can to keep him in his seat”.
