Reader feedback: Congratulations, Slovakia

Re: "Right wing wins majority," By Tom Nicholson, Vol. 8 No. 36, September 23-29

My congratulations for the election results! Not everything has been achieved in the past four years, but Slovakia is on the best path to join Nato and the EU in the very near future.

Step by step, Slovakia is coming closer to the other European democracies. Soon we will be able to say in Germany "Willkommen in der Europäischen Union !" or in France " Bienvenue dans l'Union Européenne ! " to our Slovak friends.
