Gyurcsány, met at European Council summit in Lisbon.

"We agreed that our deputy prime ministers would prepare a visit of the Hungarian prime minister to Slovakia," Fico said.

"Each side expressed their opinion with regard to the latest happenings and we agreed to set up a mechanism for preventing misunderstandings.”

Fico continued that he "had not come to Lisbon because of Gyurcsány. I have had 14 such informal meetings today."
