Fico visiting China

SLOVAK PM Robert Fico begins a planned five-day visit to China today, during which he is expected to focus on business topics.

Fico wants to convince Chinese interests to invest in Slovakia, which thanks to its EU membership hopes to become the logistical entry gate to the European market for Chinese businessmen.

Although Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš said that Fico would also talk about human rights in China, the prime minister himself did not say he planned to bring up the issue, the Sme daily wrote.

The Slovak branch of Amnesty International called on Fico to mention at least one case in which human rights were violated during his visit to Beijing.
