Relocation now or referral to the EU Court - Avramopoulos

Hungary Closes Border With Croatia Migrants Flood Into Tiny Slovenia

The European Commission, Greece, Italy, Germany, Sweden and several other EU countries backed the plan.

"It is very good news", EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos told a press conference in Brussels, it was "an opportunity" to call on all member states to show solidarity.

"The lesson of the verdict is that helping people fleeing war and terror is truly a common responsibility for Europe", the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, which provides free legal assistance to asylum seekers, said in a statement quoted by AP.

"Politics has raped European law and values", he said.

Article 78 (3) of the EU Treaty provides that 'in the event of one or more Member States being confronted by an emergency situation characterised by a sudden inflow of nationals of third countries, the Council, on a proposal from the Commission, may adopt provisional measures for the benefit of the Member State (s) concerned'.

Hungary and Slovakia pledged not to change their opposition to taking in asylum seekers after the EU's top court on Wednesday (6 September) dismissed the two countries' complaints over the EU's migration quota scheme.

The European Court of Justice overruled Hungary and Slovakia's objections against migrant quotas introduced to ease the burden on countries such as Italy and Greece.

"The decision puts at risk the security of all of Europe and the future of all of Europe as well", Szijjarto said, calling the ruling "contrary to the interests of the European nations, including Hungary".

Human rights groups have criticized Hungary and Poland for their reluctance to take in any refugees.

In its ruling Wednesday, the court rejected all the arguments brought by Hungary and Slovakia. The ruling will also complicate relations between the European Union and Poland, which supported the Hungarian and Slovakian challenge.

Poland initially supported the plan but has come out strongly opposed since a right-wing government came to power.

Slovakia has accepted about 16 refugees as of July 2017.

Slovakia's Prime Minister Robert Fico stressed the fact that the migration mechanism expires on September 26, because it was meant as temporary. While the flow of Syrian refugees has slowed somewhat since a deal was signed with Turkey, the question remains of what to do with the ones that have already arrived.

This is largely a result of a controversial deal the European Union signed with Turkey in March past year to send back migrants in return for billions of euros in aid and for admitting asylum seekers directly from refugee camps in Turkey.
