Paška discusses reform treaty with EU ambassadors

Current European issues were the main topic of Slovak Parliament Speaker Pavol Paška's meeting with EU-member and EU-candidate countries' ambassadors on October 24 in Bratislava, his spokesman Jozef Plško said.

Slovak Parliamentary Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Boris Zala and European Affairs Committee chairman Milan Urbáni were also in attendance. The diplomats discussed the results of the Inter-governmental meeting of the European Council held last week in Lisbon that resulted in the new Reform Treaty.

The ambassadors said they expected a majority of Slovak MPs would support the treaty. TASR
