EU objections tabulated

Slovakia’s main negotiator for EU entry, Ján Figeľ, presented his country’s objections to EU funding proposals that would give new members only 25 per cent of normal EU agriculture subsidies, and bring them up to par gradually by 2013.

Slovakia also it believes it should receive 30 million euros more in pre-entry aid in 2003 than the EU has calculated.

A meeting of EU entry candidates in the region is scheduled for next week to coordinate negotiations for better financial conditions for new EU members.
