Poland ready to pay for migrants to go home

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has said in an interview with the DPA agency that the Polish authorities are ready to help migrants stuck at the border return home. But this requires “goodwill on the part of Lukashenka.”

Morawiecki said that the whole European Union should financially support the repatriation of migrants, as most of them are heading not for Poland but Germany and the Netherlands. However, in this matter, “does not want to wait for the European Union.”

“If there is goodwill on Lukashenka’s part, we will immediately heed this positive signal and cooperate in financing migrants who go home to Iraq and other countries. It should be a common effort, but we can also act on our own,” he stressed.
