  • Estonian MP - Paris attacks a declaration of war on Europe
    of striking back Mihkelson said the EU must understand that Islamic extremism including within the union poses a very serious threat to European citizens Accordingly the EU must develop a common strategy both for activities within its borders aimed at ensuring security as well as in foreign and security policy to counter the danger of attack The EU must do everything to finally take its external borders under control Defending internal borders is not a solution when we are not able to ascertain who and for what reason is entering the EU Michelson continued It will be possible to minimise the danger of such attacks within the union only when intelligence information is shared between countries and one takes active measures against terrorist networks It is also important to chart the main sources of the spread of Islamic extremism in the EU Besides it s essential for the EU member states to resolutely increase their contribution to the fight against the Islamic State and its associate organisations as part of multi national coalitions This time a solidarity march on the streets of Paris is not enough We are facing a long fight literally and Europe must be ready for it he concluded Comments Related Articles Concept of foreign policy has changed for Estonia Medieval ships uncovered beneath Tallinn building sites Go Rail ends Tallinn Moscow service for economic reasons Subscribe Advertise Log In Please enter your username and password Forgot your password Login Related Articles Japan follows Estonia s lead with electronic ID cards Right wing parties launch 24 hour anti migrant rally Right wing parties launch 24 hour anti migrant rally in Tallinn The battle for the Estonian coastline Subscribe A subscription to The Baltic Times is a cost effective way of staying in touch with the latest Baltic
