Robertson again: “Eyes wide open”

Nato Secretary General George Robertson, meeting Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda in Brussels yesterday, said again that Slovaks must next year elect a new government with “eyes wide open” to the impact of their choice on the country’s integration aims. Nato and European Union officials have previously expressed worries over the possible return to power of a government led by former prime minister Vladimír Mečiar in September 2002 elections.
