During his visit to České Velenice, a town with 3,000 people on the Austrian border, Zeman has assured the local citizens that as soon as the Czech intelligence services inform him about an illegal migrant who is approaching the territory of the Czech Republic, he will call the army, the police, the active reserves of the army, and also the firefighters.

“And as you may know, firefighters possess water cannons,” he added.
