Europe must "wake up from its lethargy and finally start thinking about the safety of its citizens," Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło said when asked to comment on the latest spate of terror attacks.

Speaking to public broadcaster TVP Info on Saturday evening, Szydło said that Europe “must not be afraid to talk about terrorism” and should “finally replace political correctness with common sense.”

She made the comment when asked what Europe should do to prevent more terrorist acts like those in Spain where at least 14 people were killed and more than 100 others injured in two separate attacks on Thursday.

"There is no price at which the safety of the Polish people could be sold, so the most important thing for me today is to have partners in Europe, among the European elites, to talk about what should be done to combat terrorism," Szydło said.

She added that the migration policies of Europe's leaders, especially German Chancellor Angela Merkel, "have benefited those who are now sowing death" among European citizens.

Szydło also suggested, without elaborating, that Central and Eastern European countries have developed their own ideas on how to deal with terrorism. (str)
