German foreign minister visits capital

GERMAN foreign minister Joschka Fischer did not put pressure on President Rudolf Schuster regarding Slovakia's position on Iraq when they met in Bratislava on March 11, despite the country's different stance on the issue.

Unlike Germany, a staunch opponent of war against Iraq, Slovakia is one of 10 NATO candidates from central and eastern Europe to have expressed support for the US on the issue.

"Minister Fischer realises that if Slovakia has supported one solution, it cannot then change its mind," the president's spokesman, Ján Füle, told journalists after the meeting.
