Slovakia: Fico's statement on minorities unacceptable

This content is also available in: English

Joseph Daul MEP, Chairman of the EPP Group in the European Parliament, has condemned the speech by the Slovakian Prime Minister, Robert Fico, which goes against minorities in his own country.

Joseph Daul said: "The comments of the Slovak PM are unacceptable. I strongly condemn his nationalist views on minorities, whether they are ethnic or religious. There is no room for such language in Europe today.

Instead of blaming minorities for his inability to serve the needs of all Slovak citizens, the Head of Government should devote more time and energy on solving his domestic economic problems and the drastic rise in unemployment.

Europe must act immediately when the rights of citizens and their human and minority rights are endangered."

The EPP Group is by far the largest political group in the European Parliament with 270 Members and 3 Croatian Observer Members.
