"Apparently, another migration of nations is coming. Someone [in Europe] thinks that the migration wave has already passed. But it only begins, a real tsunami is coming only now," Klaus said in an interview with the Prima TV channel.
According to Klaus, the migration wave cannot be stopped in the center of Europe, so it should be tackled on EU external borders.
The former president said the mandatory quota system on redistributing refugees proposed by the European Commission would be eventually adopted by the Czech Republic, which continuously opposed it. He added that quotas, however, would not solve the migration crisis.
Europe is currently struggling to cope with a massive refugee influx, with hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing conflict-torn countries of the Middle East and North Africa in search of asylum in Europe.
