The Visegrad group of central European countries will hold a summit on Feb. 15 to discuss the migration crisis, Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka tweeted Tuesday.

 

The meeting of Czech, Polish, Hungarian and Slovak prime ministers will take place ahead of a Feb. 18-19 summit of European Union leaders at which the crisis will be assessed.

 

The Visegrad group have called for stricter EU border protection and limits on an influx of migrants, and have protested against an EU quota system intended to redistribute asylum seekers from western Europe.
