BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Central European countries are expected to make joint proposals at Friday's EU summit and their most important goal is to help Bulgaria in its efforts to protect its border with Turkey in the migration crisis, a top Hungarian minister said on Thursday.
Prime Minister Viktor Orban's chief of staff, Janos Lazar, said "Europe's future" would be decided on the Bulgarian-Turkish border.
"The V4 countries will probably take a joint stance in Bratislava ... and are expected to make joint proposals," Lazar told a news conference. "The focus of these will be on strengthening the legitimacy of nations (within Europe.)"
Lazar also said the Visegrad group believed that a joint European army should be set up, and Frontex should be strengthened.
