US says HZDS unacceptable

In its clearest message yet, the US administration through Nato ambassador Nicholas Burns has told the heads of Slovak political parties that if the HZDS opposition party forms part of the next government, Slovakia will not receive an invitation to join Nato, reports the Sme daily paper. In a meeting at the US ambassador’s residence attended by Burns, Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda (SDKÚ), Robert Fico (Smer), Pavol Rusko (Ano), Daniel Lipšic (KDH) and Pál Csáky (SMK), the Sloval political leaders were warned away from post-election cooperation with the HZDS.
