THE European Union must draw up a comprehensive action plan to stop illegal migration, according to Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis.

Mr Babis said EU member states had to show a united front or the crisis which has gripped the bloc or more than three years will never be resolved.

The billionaire businessman said: “If Italy and Malta won’t welcome the migrants, then Spain will.

“And so we’re sending the message to migrants that it’s possible to come to Europe, from Morocco via Spain.

“This has to stop. Otherwise we’ll never stop the migrant influx.

“I plan to discuss this with EU leaders and take part in implementing a comprehensive action plan.”

The head of the Czech Republic’s populist ANO movement was speaking ahead of a visit to Italy and Malta which coincides with that of Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orban, who maintains the same hard line on illegal migration.

Mr Babis said: “I want to discuss the issue with my partners in Italy and Malta and of course also with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who recently negotiated with Spain.

“We need to begin co-operating in a serious way to find a solution because we needlessly lost three years to an inane debate on migrant quotas.”

EU migration policy remains a red hot political issue in the Czech Republic even though just a handful of refugees have settled there since the crisis began to unfold in 2015.

The Czech leader restated his position that the Czech Republic would welcome “no illegal migrants”.

He said: “It’s a key move, a symbol and a message to migrants and migrant smugglers that it’s pointless to take a boat destined for Europe.”

Last month he described Italy’s request that fellow EU members states take some of 450 migrants stranded at sea as “a road to hell”.
