Economy Minister Ľubomír Harach says he is "ready to carry political responsibility up to resignation" from his post if it proves that the sale of 21.24% shares in VSŽ steel maker which Transpetrol sold to an unknown owner is disadvantageous for the state. The minister added, however, that Transpetrol was responsible for technical matters related to the sale as before the transaction the company submitted to him an analysis of the sale.
