Dzurinda meets EC brass in Brussels

Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda yesterday met with European Commission Chairman Romano Prodi and European Commissioner for Enlargement Gunter Verheugen to discuss Slovakia’s EU entry progress and relations with Hungary. Prodi said that recent tensions between the central European neighbours should be solved by direct bilateral negotiations, and said that Nato’s decision on Slovakia’s entry bid in November would not affect the country’s chances of getting into the EU.
