Radio Gdansk News in English: Polish PM says diplomatic flurry key in defusing EU migrant crisis

The Polish Prime Minister has said that his country's diplomatic efforts to deal with the migrant crisis on the country's border with Belarus are paying off with fewer migrants arriving in Belarus in recent days.

The PM made the claim as he attended the so called V4 summit of regional leaders which includes Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Mr Morawiecki added that talks had been held with many international politicians including the Iraqi Prime Minister and leaders of the autonomous Kurdistan region, as well as leaders in Turkey and other Middle Eastern nations where the majority of the migrants come from. European leaders have blamed the Belarusian regime for fomenting the crisis in response to EU sanctions placed for human rights violations at the hands of the country's leader Alexander Lukashenko.
