Slovak PM Fico: migrant quotas will not happen on my watch

BRATISLAVA (Reuters) - Slovakia will refuse to implement a European Union plan to redistribute asylum seekers to all EU countries under a quota system approved by the bloc’s interior ministers on Tuesday, Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico said.

“As long as I am prime minister, mandatory quotas will not be implemented on Slovak territory,” Fico told the parliament’s EU affairs committee.
