Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas urged Tuesday to not blame refugees for the terrorist attack happening in Europe. 

"I think all of those people running from war and terror, who are refugees, they should not be blamed for those who are terrorists," Rõivas said as he appeared on a late-night talkshow The Daily Show, while visiting the U.S.

"Of course, the terrorists want us to be afraid, they want us to build walls between European countries, they want us to close Schengen area, but, you know, if we do that they have won.

"So, we should keep our unity, we should work together, not only Europe, but also the U.S. And we need to keep saying 'We are not afraid', that we are no surrendering to terror, and this is the way to deal with it," Rõivas concluded.
