Slovenia dismisses accountability for terrorist transit

Ljubljana (Slovenia), Sep 8 (IANS) Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar has dismissed suggestions that his country could be responsible for terrorists having transited the country with the massive refugee wave in 2015, media reported.

“Slovenia was among the smallest countries on the route and the first one on the Balkan route to register these things,” Xinhua news agency cited Cerar as saying in a statement on Wednesday, adding that “wanting to make it accountable in any way would be utterly unfair”.

Cerar stressed that Slovenia had warned individuals that may pose a threat to security, the reason it had been striving to stop migrations on Europe’s external border.

His statement came after a CNN report said two persons linked to those responsible for the Paris terrorist attack had travelled through Slovenia.
