Slota's remarks on US policy not government’s stance

Slovakia's Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš said the recent statements made by Ján Slota, head of the ruling coalition Slovak National Party, are not the official stance of the Slovak Republic.

In a political debate talk show on public Slovak Television (STV) on April 1, Slota accused the US of decimating entire nations. He also accused Washington of wanting to liquidate Serbia. Kubiš stressed that Slovakia considers the United States a strategic partner and not a liquidator of nations, as they were referred to by Slota.

Slota radically opposes the idea of an independent Kosovo and calls it a country of fundamentalists, drug smugglers and human traffickers. In Slovak parliament, he referred to Kosovo as a base of Islamic terrorism emerging in the heart of Europe.
