PRAGUE (Sputnik) — The current wave of migration into Europe is "an organized invasion," Czech President Milos Zeman said Saturday.
"I am deeply convinced that what we are faced with is an organized invasion, but in any case not a spontaneous movement of refugees," Zeman said in a yearly address to his nation, as broadcast on local television.
According to the Czech president, the majority of migrants arriving in Europe are young men without families.
The EU border agency Frontex detected 1.55 million undocumented border crossings in 2015.
The Czech Republic is among countries that have fiercely opposed the Brussels-proposed plan to share out some 160,000 refugees between EU member states under a mandatory quota scheme.
