Poland wants to continue to host the European Union’s Frontex border agency, Interior Minister Mariusz Błaszczak has said.
He was speaking on Friday amid reports that there is an intensifying dispute between the Polish government and EU officials over the agency.
According to private radio broadcaster RMF FM, the EU’s commissioner for migration, Dimitris Avramopoulos, has cancelled plans to visit Warsaw amid a difference of opinion.
According to Błaszczak, the main divisive issue is that Poland is not accepting migrants from North Africa and the Middle East.
Talks about the agency are in progress, Błaszczak told private television station Polsat News.
