The President of the Czech Republic Milos Zeman has urged his country to seal its borders in the interest of security. This report from Deutsche Welle quotes his spokesman Jiri Ovcacek on Tuesday last who said that the President does not want to risk terrorist attacks like those in France and Germany. The President has a stronger political role than in other central European countries but his power is still shared with the prime minister. The president also called for Czech citizens to arm themselves for self defence.
