Szydlo also claims that the EU has even changed its own stance on the matter thanks to the influence of Poland's resolute and unyielding attitude, Tanjug reported, citing AP.

She spoke on Monday at a joint news conference with ruling Law and Justice party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski, and added that Poland is today "seen in Europe as a country free of terrorism."

AP said that Poland "refused to accept any refugees in a legally binding EU resettlement plan - and argues that accepting Muslim migrants would threaten the country's security and its Catholic identity."
