At an intergovernmental conference in Marrakech, Morocco 164 countries have agreed to the controversial global pact that will reduce the sovereignty of nation-states concerning control of migration and also will propose restrictions on criticizing mass migration.
United States backed out of the deal last year. It was followed by Australia, Austria, Latvia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Chile, Dominican Republic, Poland and Slovakia. It is significant that 5 of these countries are former occupied territories of USSR who remember the consequences of forced mass migration from Russia.
Bulgaria, Estonia, Italy, Israel, Slovenia and Switzerland are still undecided about joining the pact.
