Government and Slovnaft meet to discuss fuel prices

Following an earlier meeting held last Friday, a new round of talks between the country's oil refinery Slovnaft and the government on fuel prices took place on May 3, Prime Minister Robert Fico's spokesperson Silvia Glendová said.

"Despite the fact that fuel prices have increased in neighbouring countries, the Slovak Government stands firm in its view that Slovnaft's increased profits and the firming of the Slovak koruna don't provide any reason for raising fuel prices," Glendová said.

According to her, the government is convinced that the situation allows for a slight reduction in fuel prices.

Talks between the government and Slovnaft will continue on May 9. Both parties agreed that fuel prices will not be changed until then.
