Slota's remarks on US policy not "official stance"

Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš said Ján Slota's recent statements about the United States do not represent the official stance of the Slovak Republic.

Slota is the leader of a junior member of Slovakia's ruling coalition, the Slovak National Party (SNS). In a political debate program on the public Slovak Television 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 Slota said.

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