Fico: Don’t abuse private visits

The Slovak Government won't tolerate visiting officials using their trips to Slovakia to criticise the country or its institutions, Slovak PM Robert Fico said on October 3. His comments come a day after Hungarian President László Solyom’s visit to Komárno (Nitra region).

Fico stated that each president who visits Slovakia will be welcomed with due honours, but also stressed that “… the Slovak Government is the Government of a sovereign country and we cannot allow representatives of other countries, and especially of Hungary, to behave in the south of Slovakia as if they were in the north of Hungary".
