Joint Statement by Diplomatic Missions Bratislava following the attack on Zámocká street

As international partners of Slovakia, we were appalled by the October 12 shootings in Bratislava, which appear to have specifically targeted the LGBTQI+ community. Such acts of hatred are unacceptable. Our thoughts are first with the victims and their families.  Our thoughts are also with the LGBTQI+ community in Slovakia who face hatred because of who they are or who they love. Hate-fueled rhetoric leads to hate-fueled violence and has no place in any country. Support for and protection of the human rights of all persons are among the shared values that unite us and upon which our democratic societies draw strength.
