Slovakia’s Interior Ministry spokesman Ivan Metik has announced it will only accept Christian migrants when it takes in Syrian refugees under an EU relocation plan. Slovakia will accept 200 Christian migrants from camps in Turkey, Italy and Greece, as Muslim migrants would not integrate as easily into Slovakia's predominantly Christian population.

 Metik told the BBC:“We could take 800 Muslims, but we don’t have any mosques in Slovakia, so how can Muslims be integrated if they are not going to like it here?”

EU Commission spokeswoman Annika Breithard emphasised that EU states were prohibited from any form of discrimination
