RIGA, February 9. /TASS/. A new government formed in Latvia will not accept additional refugees, candidate for prime minister, Maris Kucinskis, said on Monday.
"The declaration will say that the new government will comply with the earlier assumed obligations on accepting refugees, but it believes that at the present moment Latvia cannot accept additional refugees with the exception of the cases when we agree to this voluntarily," the candidate said.
Earlier, Latvia agreed to accept before the end of 2017 531 refugees from countries of the Middle East and Africa. The first six migrants arrived last week and were accommodated at the center for illegal migrants Mucenieki, 20 kilometers from capital Riga.
Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma resigned on December 7, 2015. The parliament is expected to approve a new government on February 11.
