Poland's security services convene an anti-terror meeting after the tragic events in the southern French city
The Minister of Internal Affairs of Poland Mariusz Blaszczak blamed the political correctness and multiculturalism of Western Europe for what happened in Nice.
"What conclusion has been drawn after the previous terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels? The marches were organised, the colourful flowers were drawn on the pavements. For me, those colours of the rainbow is a very clear reference to the LGBT community. The EU High Representative Mogherini cried after the attacks... Is that a proper reaction?" Blaszczak was quoted as saying by the Polish media.
The Interior Minister was speaking at an extraordinary meeting of Poland's security and law enforcement agencies.
Błaszczak added that security services "do not report that there is a threat in Poland."
On July 4 Poland reinstated temporary controls on its borders with other EU member states.
Security measures were also stepped up as county prepares to host the Roman Catholic Church's World Youth Days in Krakow, which will be attended by Pope Francis.
