US President Joe Biden condemned the “horrific act of violence” over the shooting of Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, a White House statement said.

“I am concerned about the reports of the attack on Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fica. Jill (Biden's wife – ed.) and I pray for his speedy recovery, and our thoughts are with his family and the people of Slovakia. We condemn this horrific act of violence. Our embassy is in close contact with the government of Slovakia and stands ready to assist,” the White House said in a statement.

The attack on the head of the Slovak government took place on Wednesday. The attacker opened fire when Fico, after the end of the away government meeting, went out to greet the residents of Handlova.
