Agriculture minister opposes forests privatisation

Agriculture Minister and head of Democratic Left Party Pavol Koncos is concerned over the future of state owned forests in Slovakia.

Koncos said January 1 in Banska Bystrica that the Prime Minister Mikulas Dzurinda, Deputy Prime Minister Ivan Miklos and the Anti-Monopoly Office were interested in privatizing the forests, an idea Koncos opposes strongly.

"Enough was stolen by the chosen ones in privatisation already. God save us from selling the state forests," Koncos said.
