WARSAW (Reuters) - Solidarity within the European Union is key, but European countries cannot burden their EU allies with problems they are responsible for, said Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo on Wednesday.

“The issue of refugees is making us aware that the question of solidarity must be defined clearly,” Szydlo said in her policy speech to the parliament.

“One cannot call attempts to export problems, which some countries have created without others’ participation -solidarity.”
