Speaking today before a televised news conference the Slovak leader said the incident, in which it is suspected a Pakistani migrant crashed a truck into a crowd of people at a Christmas market in Berlin killing 12, was an attack on European identity.
Fico said: “We consider that attacking people at Christmas markets, who to some extent are preparing for Christmas, is an attack against the cultural identity of Europe. We need the public to know that these attacks that are taking place, and that they are attacks against European identity”.
The Prime Minister vowed to continue policies aimed at ensuring Slovakians’ safety, stating: “I think the measures we have taken as a result of migration crisis, were absolutely right, and I believe that in a short time they will prove to have been necessary.
“For as long as I’m Prime Minister I will never agree to develop a Muslim community in Slovakia,” he added.
