Danish PM visits Slovakia

The Danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen was in Bratislava yesterday for talks with Slovak PM Mikuláš Dzurinda.

During his visit, Rasmussen said he believed "that as two small states in the EU, Denmark and Slovakia will find they have a lot in common on many issues."

He also said he did not see the need for the new European constitution to include references to God, an idea supported by Slovak representatives in current discussions, nor any reason for there to be a permanent EU president.

During the visit, the two PMs visited caves in Demänovská and the ski resort Jasna.
