BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Central European leaders signed a joint declaration on Thursday saying immigration should not be the answer to the European Union’s demographic challenges, while calling on the bloc to keep family policy under national jurisdiction.
“Each Member State should shape its own family policy in accordance with its own constitution, traditions and customs. Family policy is and should remain a national competence,” said the statement, signed by the prime ministers of Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovenia and the president of Serbia.
