President Niinistö in speech at UN: Racism and extremism must be stopped


President Sauli Niinistö said in his speech at the UN general assembly that narrow-minded nationalism, racism and violent extremism are destructive ideologies that must be stopped. Mr Niinistö also commented on the Syrian war and the refugee situation in Europe saying that European countries are sympathetic to refugees but that they have limited resources to look after them and to offer humanitarian aid. According to the president, humanitarian measures will not solve the root causes of migration. He called for societal reforms but emphasises that responsibility of local governments.
