Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will attend a Visegrad Group (V4) meeting in Prague on Wednesday to discuss the current situation in Europe related to the spread of coronavirus, and current European issues, including migration and EU finances.

The Visegrad Group (V4) comprises Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.

The PM wrote on social media on Tuesday that during the V4 meeting, state delegations would like to develop solutions and strengthen cooperation on the most burning issue of the coronavirus.

The new virus, first detected in China, has infected more than 90,000 people globally and caused over 3,000 deaths. The World Health Organization has named the illness COVID-19, referring to its origin late last year and the coronavirus that causes it.

The Polish Health Ministry said on Tuesday that 559 samples tested for coronavirus had proved negative in all Poland's laboratories.

According to the Government Information Centre, the prime ministers of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia, will also talk about the EU budget for 2021-2027.

Apart from that, the agenda of the V4 meeting includes a discussion on the migration policy regarding the situation in Greece and Turkey.

Last Thursday, the Turkish government announced that it would not stop people wanting to enter the EU. Over 10,000 migrants, mainly from Syria, but also from other Middle East and countries and Afghanistan have travelled to Turkish areas close to the borders with the EU.
