The accepting of migrants largely facilitates Islamic State's (IS) expansion to Europe, Czech President Miloš Zeman said in an interview with Parlamentni listy.cz server, adding that all UN Security Council standing members must be persuaded of the need to intervene against IS.
Zeman has long been pushing for a military action against IS. He has also supported the Facebook initiative We Do Not Want Islam in the Czech Republic.
"If European countries accept a wave of migrants, there will be terrorist groups among them, of which also a Libyan minister has warned. By accepting the migrants, we strongly facilitate Islamic State's expansion to Europe," Zeman said.
