Prime Minister Robert Fico made the comments while declaring that multi-culturalism is “a fiction,” the Independent reported.
He told reporters that he would resist the European Commission’s plan for mandatory quotas to share 120,000 asylum seekers among the EU’s member states.
He said: “Not only are we refusing mandatory quotas, we will never make a voluntary decision that would lead to formation of a united Muslim community in Slovakia.
“Multi-culturalism is a fiction. Once you let migrants in, you can face such problems”, he said referring to the Paris shootings in November.
Slovakia is a socially conservative country with a largely Catholic population of 5.4 million people.
Last year, it received just 169 asylum requests. However this year it is being asked to accept 802 migrants under the European scheme.
