Czech PM: German far-right backers shortsighted

Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka is condemning people who are celebrating the strong showing of a far-right, anti-immigrant party in Germany’s national election.
Sobotka said on Twitter on Monday that those reveling in Alternative for Germany’s third-place finish are being shortsighted.
He says about AfD: “Today they attack the refugees and the EU, tomorrow they will target the Czechs and Poles.”
The party received 12.6 percent support in Sunday’s election and will enter the German parliament for the first time.
Former Czech President Vaclav Klaus, a renowned euro-skeptic, supported AfD in its election campaign. He welcomed the election result, calling it a “huge encouragement for all Czech and European democrats.”
