(ANSA) - TRIESTE - Accepting refugees would "certainly be worse" than the European Union imposing penalties, said Interior Minister Mariusz Blaszczak on Wednesday, according to Radio Poland. Blaszczak was questioned on Polish Radio about statements by the European Union that Poland and Hungary have until June to start accepting refugees or be sanctioned.

"Let us keep in mind what happened in Western Europe. Let us remember the terrorist attacks" which "are a fact in the larger states of the European Union, unfortunately," Blaszczak said.

"Let's remember that they started with relatively few Muslim communities, which are very numerous now" in Europe, he added.
