BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis said on Thursday that the EU border agency Frontex should be strengthened and its forces beefed up substantially.

Speaking at a joint press conference in Budapest after a meeting with the Slovak, Hungarian, Polish and Austria leaders, Babis said he agreed with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on this, and believed Frontex should be increased to 10,000 staff.
