NATO denies JID reports
26 Sep 2003 Flash News
NATO has officially denied reports by British magazine Jane's Intelligence Digest (JID) that claimed that NATO Secretary General George Robertson recommended member countries of the alliance, that has not yet ratified Slovakia's membership, to suspend the scheduled ratification, daily SME wrote.
"It simply is not true," NATO spokesman Robert Pszczel told media. "That article is not true," he stressed.
According to the JID, NATO is so concerned about recent developments in Slovakia that it advised its employees to limit private and professional contacts with Slovaks. JID referred to the recent trials of Prime Minister Mikulas Dzurinda to recall National Security Office boss Jan Mojzis, and scandals surrounding the Slovak Intelligence Service.
Dzurinda considers the magazine untrustworthy.
