Pay attention to Roma, says OSCE

JAN Kubis, the secretary general of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), says that Slovakia should pay more attention to the problems facing Roma people.

Kubis said that Europe perceives Slovakia’s Roma issue as something the country needs to deal with more intensely, the SME daily has reported. In other areas, Europe views Slovakia in a positive light.

The OSCE secretary general acknowledged, however, that the Roma issue is not just a Slovak problem. He thinks that tackling Roma discrimination is a global challenge that requires international cooperation.
