Belarusian president criticizes EU for refusing to hold migrants talks

Belarus is organizing a second flight to repatriate migrants at the end of this month. That’s according to president Alexander Lukashenko, who’s asking the European Union to take hundreds of migrants stranded at this border with Poland.

They are waiting for the EU to respond on the issue of 2 000 refugees. They have about 2,000 refugees in this camp. German chancellor Angela Merkel promised them. They would consider this problem at the European Union level. Lukashenko says the EU is refusing to hold talks and he also says he does not want a confrontation with Poland after Warsaw warned that tensions over the stranded migrants could flare up. The EU has accused Belarus of flying in asylum seekers mostly from the Middle East to enter Poland Lithuania and Latvia as retaliation for sanctions.
