Crisis on the border. Mateusz Morawiecki: by defending our border, we defend the whole of Europe

The Prime Minister made it clear that “we, Poles, are determined to protect our border, which is also the eastern border of Europe and NATO, by all means.” Defending borders is important because if we cannot stop thousands of migrants now, “soon another hundreds of thousands or millions” will be headed from Africa or the Middle East to Europe, especially Germany.

– Over 80 million people live in Germany. Would you allow another 50 million to come? I think people in Germany would not be happy with that because they want to keep their standard of living. They also want to preserve their culture, said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

The Prime Minister added that he was pleased with the support for Poland from the leaders of NATO countries, including the current Chancellor Angela Merkel and her successor Olaf Scholz. The next step would be a firm declaration by Belarus’s neighbors: Poland, Lithuania and Latvia. And the next one could be the launch of Art. 4 of the NATO treaty. As the head of the Polish government noted, when it comes to potential threats from Belarus and Russia, “nothing can be ruled out”.

– Lukashenko and Putin clearly pursue a strategy of causing anxiety and destabilizing the West. We don’t know what else they are up to. It is possible that the border crisis is aimed at distracting attention from the new military attacks that Putin is preparing in Ukraine, said the Prime Minister. He expressed hope that the international pressure would take effect and that, in addition to the 20,000 people, Migrants who came to Belarus, the influx of more will be stopped.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki assured that the example of Poland shows that a sovereign state can and should successfully defend its borders.

“The same is true for Europe: we must do everything we can to protect our borders in the Mediterranean and to the East from immigration,” he added, stressing that “all means of protection and surveillance are needed to be able to fight off attacks.”
