On the instruction by the Czech government, the Czech Social Democratic Home Secretary Milan Chovanec will reject all attempts by the European Commission to impose refugee quotas on the Czech Republic during new negotiations in Brussels on Friday. Chovanec will demand that the European Union hermetically closes the EU borders and will set up "well functioning" detention centres for refugees. "There is no time for experiments with refugee quotas," said Chovanec on Twitter.

If Brussels tries to force the Czech Republic to accept refugee quotas, the country will sue the European Commission, said Chovanec.
