The Slovak Republic will support the EU draft reform treaty that is the main topic of the Lisbon Summit of the heads of European governments and states, Slovakia's main EU negotiator, Pavol Hamžík, told the SITA newswire.
"It would be irresponsible not to adopt the document, because we need reform for the 27-member EU to function," he said.
According to Slovak diplomats, Prime Minister Robert Fico will not raise objections to the document's current wording during the Lisbon Summit, which starts on October 18 in Portugal. Several top representatives of the Foreign Affairs Ministry said Slovakia has accepted the fact that, after 2014, the number of EU commissioners will be lower than the actual amount of the EU member countries, according to the new EU treaty.
