On the same day, Slovakia’s Minister of Interior Robert Kaliak said the country will use its veto power to decide the quota for migrant intake. He said together with the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary, Slovakia will continue protesting against compulsory receiving of migrants in European countries. Meanwhile, Poland is open a possibility that it may receive more migrants to the country if the EU protects its outside border and classifies migrants for war or economic purposes.
