Austria’s new anti-Muslim migration Chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, has a lot in common with the Visegrad group in respect to eliminating Muslim illegal immigration and significantly reducing legal immigration from Muslim countries.

Voice of EuropeA summit will be held on Thursday in Budapest with the prime ministers of the Visegrad Group (V4) and the Chancellor of Austria attending, the PM’s press chief said in a statement.
Viktor Orban of Hungary, Peter Pellegrini of Slovakia, Andrej Babis of the Czech Republic and Mateusz Morawiecki of Poland will be joined by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, and they will hold a joint press conference in the Varkert Bazaar in the afternoon, Bertalan Havasi, deputy secretary of state at the Prime Minister’s Office, said on Tuesday.
In an interview with broadcaster ORF 2, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz says that migrants should be helped locally and that every country has the right to refuse migrants. “In my opinion every country should have the possibility to decide for themselves how many and what kind of people they want to accept,” Kurz says.
Austria already agreed with Hungary and other central European countries that the EU migrant quota system doesn’t work and that an asylum policy should start with border control.
