Christian Estrosi, head of the French city of Nice, said he refused to accept refugees from Afghanistan. He said this in an interview for RTL.
When asked about the situation in Afghanistan, where over the weekend the power was practically taken over by the Taliban, Estrosi ruled out the possibility of receiving refugees in his city. Calling on the international community not to abandon the people of Afghanistan, Christian Estrosi was the first to talk about terrorist risks.
“I am ready to join international politics. The resumption of power by the Taliban is a threat to the security of the Western world, with the reconstitution of Al Qaeda there is a new breeding ground for Islamic terrorism,” the mayor stressed.
“No, I don’t want to host refugees at home, that’s clear. In recent years our city has been largely a victim of terrorism, let’s introduce a migration policy with quotas,” Christian Estrosi added. In doing so, he recalled the events of July 14, 2016, and the killing of three people in the city last fall. Recall that 86 person were killed and more than 300 injured when a terrorist drove a 19-ton truck into a crowd of people.
