Poland has refused to accept refugees under European Union (EU) quotas following the brazen attacks in Paris in which 127 people were killed.

“Poland cannot accept migrants under European Union (EU) quotas after the attacks in Paris,” country’s european affairs minister designate Konrad Szymanski said.

In a commentary published in the right-leaning news portal wPolityce.pl, Szymanski said his incoming government did not agree with Poland’s commitment to accept its share of an EU-wide relocation of immigrants, and now, “in the face of the tragic acts in Paris, we do not see the political possibilities to implement (this).”

“The (EU Council) decision is valid for all EU countries, but its implementation is very hard to imagine today,” Szymanski said in a separate interview for RMF FM radio. “We have to wait for the EU Court of Justice, for Brussel’s reaction.”
