(Poland Daily) Poland will not sign the United Nations Global Compact For Migration. The Polish Minister of Defence Mariusz Blaszczak announced the decision during a radio interview. The minister argued that the document will make the migration crisis and its consequences even worse than the current state of affairs.
The United States was the first country to declare its opposition to the compact. They were soon joined by Hungary and in recent days, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Estonia, Austria, Australia and Israel also announced that they won't sign the compact either. The Belgian coalition government is split on the issue and the outcome is still uncertain. The countries unwilling to sign the document have stated that the compact doesn't differentiate enough between legal and illegal immigration as well as encouraging massive migration flows on a global scale.
