SLOVAK National Party (SNS) chairman Ján Slota and the head of the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), Heinz-Christian Strache, signed a memorandum on friendship and co-operation in Bratislava on July 4, the TASR newswire reported.

The two parties agreed that Turkey should not be allowed to join the EU and that Europe is being Islamised.

“We’re convinced that uncontrolled migration from Asia and Africa is a road to hell that has nothing to do with the Christian foundation of Europe’s civilisation,” Slota said, as quoted by TASR.

Slota and Strache agreed on the need for a united European approach towards immigration, which has recently been affecting Italy in particular.
