Reader feedback: Gearing up for Copenhagen, By Lukáš Fila, Vol 8, No 47, Dec 9 - 15

Re: Good job Slovakia

I cannot speak nor write Slovak, but as your neighbour from the North (Poland), I am very happy with your great result at the Copenhagen summit. I am amazed at Slovak determination in negotiations with the EU, that finally led Slovakia and Poland to a united Europe. Slovakia appeared to be the most determined coutry of the 10. Congratulations!
