Czech PM Says ‘No Place’ for Afghan Refugees in Europe

Agence France-Presse, September 8, 2021

There is no place for Afghan refugees in the European Union which should instead help them to stay in their homeland, Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš said on Tuesday {snip}


The EU, which has since received thousands of Afghan refugees, is now concerned that millions may seek refuge in Europe and its neighbours like Turkey, triggering a repeat of the 2015 migrant crisis.

“There is really no place for them in Europe,” Babiš said {snip}

“An option is to lead talks with (Turkish) President (Recep Tayyip) Erdoğan, like in the past, but I don’t think that’s a good alternative,” the billionaire populist Czech leader added.


“A better alternative is a solution making the people stay in Afghanistan,” Babiš said.
