Former justice minister and PM Ján Čarnogurský is organising a petition drive to have a referendum called on Slovakia’s joining Nato. The country received an invitation to join the Alliance in November.

Čarnogurský, who has long been known for his nationalist and pro-Russian views, at the same time supports Slovakia’s integration into Western structures.
