BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Friday that he believed in a “strong, integrated Europe”, but a Europe of sovereign member states where members conduct reforms of their own national institutions freely.

At a meeting with premiers of the other three European Union members that belong to the Visegrad group -- Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary -- Morawiecki told a joint news conference that migration of talent from the region to western Europe was a major problem.
