Poland’s Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, has issued a stark warning about the ongoing turmoil in the Middle East. He expressed concerns that the conflict in Israel and Gaza, triggered by a surprise attack from Islamist militants, would not only lead to a significant influx of Muslim immigrants but also bring a wave of economic migrants.
Speaking at a press conference, Morawiecki highlighted his apprehensions about the European Union’s response to the crisis. He anticipated that the EU might expand its migrant intake from the Middle East, leading to potential security risks. Morawiecki emphasized the possibility of hidden fighters, terrorists, and economic migrants entering Europe amidst the chaos in the Middle East.
Morawiecki disclosed that he had engaged in discussions with his counterparts in the European Union and anticipated their inclination to open doors wider to migrants. In response, he affirmed his government’s commitment to fortifying Poland’s borders and enhancing national security measures. He stated that Poland would construct barriers and walls wherever necessary to safeguard the country against potential threats arising from the Middle East conflict.
