Slovakia applauds Austria election results

SLOVAKIA'S Foreign Ministry reacted positively to the results of Austria's parliamentary elections on Sunday November 24, which saw Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel's conservative People's Party win a landslide victory with 42.27 percent of the vote.

"We are waiting to see the make-up of the new Austrian government, which will underline the further development of our bilateral relations," spokesman Boris Gandel said in a statement.

"The Slovak side is confident that representatives of the new Austrian government will continue to develop friendly relations and intensive cooperation with Slovakia," he continued.

"Both countries are facing more opportunities of developing mutually beneficial cooperation not only within the Central European Region but also after the completion of Slovakia's accession to the European Union," Gandel added.
