Europe is gradually wisening up. Polish interior min. Błaszczak participated in a meeting of EU interior ministers in Luxembourg on Thursday, which focused on migration and reforming EU asylum policy. He found that more and more countries are changing their views on how to solve the migration crisis.
"In April, I was alone when I said that we should learn from Australia's experiences from 13-14 years ago, that is a program of returning migrants. And today there were a few ministers - although not a majority yet - that spoke about it openly," he said.
"There has undoubtedly been a sobering [of views] and I sincerely hope that this disillusionment process will be continue," said Błaszczak.
Poland is against policy reform proposals put forward by the European Commission in May - a permanent refugee distribution system with high fines for each person a country refuses to take in.
The Visegrad Group, compromising Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary, has put forward a "flexible solidarity" plan, which states that member states themselves would decide how they participate in EU's migration policy.
