Prime Minister Robert Fico wants the EU to put more focus on stopping migrants leaving Libya.

Slovakia's prime minister, Robert Fico, has said human rights do not give people fleeing Libya the right to enter the European Union.

He also said his country has offered, along with Poland, the Czech Republic, and Hungary, some €35 million for the Italian-led effort.
