The violent incidents took place in London earlier on March 22, the TASR newswire wrote, informed by the ministry’s press department. In a steady communication with Slovak representatives in the UK, the Foreign Ministry confirmed no Slovak nationals were involved.

At least two of the three incidents that took place in Westminster on March 22 are probably connected. A police officer was stabbed, while a car mowed down several pedestrians. Another car crashed into the fencing surrounding the Houses of Parliament. Around 40 people were injured.

The British police have stated that they perceive the attack as a “terrorist incident until we know otherwise”.

Slovak Foreign Minister Lajčák, on a business trip to Washington, D.C., – representing Slovakia at the meeting of foreign ministers of partners of the Global Coalition against the Islamic State – pointed to the timing of the attacks a year after the attacks in Brussels and “the talks in Washington on intensifying the fight against a common enemy, the Islamic State (ISIS, or Daesh) whose modus operandi is terrorism”.
