PRAGUE (Reuters) - The Czech Republic will not challenge the quota system approved by the European Union for distributing migrants among member states, Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said on Wednesday.

"Although I don't like using the quotas, I disagree with them and we voted against them, Europe must not fall apart on the migration crisis," Sobotka said in a statement.

"Therefore I don't want to further escalate the tension by (court) charges. You can stretch the rope only to certain point, then it parts."
