Poland will not accept Muslim migrants, despite the promise made by the previous Polish government to do so, as stated by Deputy Foreign Minister of Poland, Jan Dziedziczak, rp.pl reports.

Dziedziczak noted that a significant number of refugees from the south are men. "These are economic migrants who are looking for a comfortable life here," he stressed.

When a state censors the words of a neighboring country's Deputy Foreign Minister, the alarm bells really should go off, because when we lose the right to obtain information, we lose everything.
