Schuster meets "friend" Kucma

President Rudolf Schuster became the first European leader to meet Ukraine President Leonid Kucma following Nato suspicions Ukraine sold a sophisticated Korcuga radar system to Iraq. He called the meeting one of "friends from countries which have open, good and problem-free relations".

While Kucma last month attended the Nato expansion summit in Prague, he had not been invited, and was not met by officials from any of the 26 Nato member and candidate countries in attendance.

In addition to the suspected radar sale, Kucma has been blamed for several recent murders of journalists in his country.
