Athens accuses Slovakia’s Fico of ‘vitriol’ after claim about Greece becoming refugee camp
The Foreign Ministry in Athens has blasted Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico for claiming that Greece could become a giant refugee camp, or hot spot.
“We have come to the time when Greece is likely to be sacrificed,” said Fico, who is campaigning to be re-elected on Saturday. He accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of not doing enough to stem the flow of migrants to central Europe and the Balkans.
“It is obvious that the Slovak Prime Minister, just a few days before the elections in his country, wants to invest his election campaign with vitriol and human drama,” said the Greek Foreign Ministry in response.
“We are unable to witness his delirium and understand how he hopes, if re-elected, to carry out his duties as prime minister of a country that will soon assume the presidency of the Council of Ministers of the European Union.”
