Czech foreign minister says European developments main threat to country

Czech foreign minister Lubomír Zaorálek has warned that European disintegration is a greater threat to the country than Islamic State. He told a Czech Television debate that developments within Europe has more bearing on the future of the Czech Republic than developments even in China and the United States. Czechoslovakia was only created in 1918 because of the constellation of forces on the European continent that favoured it, Zaorálek added. He said that one Czech fault was a mistrust and lack of respect of institutions.
