The migrant crisis is getting stronger despite many fences constructed between the countries inside the EU.
"Solidarity can not be a la carte", Avramopoulos said, referring to a recent request by Budapest to the European Union commission to finance its border fence.
The European court of justice on Wednesday, September 6, dismissed the appeal filed by the governments of Slovakia and Hungary, who demanded to annul the decision of the European Union on the allocation of quotas for refugees among member countries of the EU. "But now we can expect all European partners to stick to the ruling and implement the agreements without delay", Gabriel said in a statement.
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'. The European Court of Justice rejected efforts by Hungary and Slovakia on September 6, 2017, to stay out of a European Union scheme to relocate refugees. "Slovakia and Hungary have tried to dodge the EU's system for solidarity, but each country has a role to play in protecting people fleeing violence and persecution".
If the member states do not change their approach in the coming weeks, we should then consider [taking] the last step in the infringement procedure: "to refer Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic to the European Court of Justice".
"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". So far only 25,000 refugees have been moved.
While Brussels has insisted the move is necessary to help deal with the 1.6 million people who arrived in Greece and Italy since 2014, the countries say it is not their responsibility. Under the quota mechanism it should have accepted 652 people from Greece and 250 from Italy.
The court's decision could also give a boost to the discussions on the reform of the EU's asylum system, Giulia Lagana, a senior analyst at the Open Society European Policy Institute in Brusselstold EUobserver.
'This decision practically and openly legitimates the power of the European Union above the member states'.
Human rights groups have criticized Hungary and Poland for their reluctance to take in any refugees.
