(ANSA) - LUBIANA - Following recent terror attacks in Barcelona and Finland, ''it is necessary to intervene firmly and timely to protect citizens. We have to build a fence along our borders, in order to protect Slovenia and prevent clandestine migrants from entering the country'', said Branko Gomis, deputy president of the SDS opposition party, led by former conservative prime minister Janez Jansa, at a press conference. On this occasion, Gomis invited politicians to use every democratic means to ''defeat radical Islam, otherwise we will have neither peace, nor security''.

Gomis then added that some of the attackers who hit several targets across Europe in 2017 entered the Union among the mass migrant flow which also crossed Slovenia in recent years.
