Schuster meets 'friend' Kuchma

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

While Kuchma attended the Nato expansion summit in Prague last month, 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, Kuchma has been blamed for several recent murders of journalists in his country.
