European Union (EU) citizens need a strong and united Europe able to assert itself in global politics, said Slovak President Andrej Kiska, also stressing the need for greater integration and investments in security and joint technology, such as a European chip. He was speaking at the Globsec 2019 security conference that is being held in Bratislava until Saturday, 8th June. "Being European means respecting the principles of the rule of law as well as defending the freedom of the media and civil society because our EU isn't just an economic project, it's a union of values and democratic principles," said Kiska, delivering his final speech on foreign policy and security as Slovak president.
