Speaking at the United Nations in New York, the Czech foreign minister, Lubomír Zaorálek, called for efforts to address the causes of migration in refugees’ countries of origin. At a one-day summit focused on refugees and migrants, Mr. Zaorálek said states should work to ensure that citizens had such dignified living conditions that they would have no need to move. The Czech foreign policy chief also said that there was a clear threat of infiltration of migration flows by violent extremists that needed to be thoroughly addressed; the protection of migrants and refugees has to be balanced with the rights of receiving countries to ensure security, Mr. Zaorálek said.
