Bush promises $6 million

THE US embassy in Bratislava says Slovakia should receive $6 million (5.5 million euro) of the $74 billion (68 billion euro) US president George Bush has requested from Congress, according to the Pravda daily.

"The president's request has gone before Congress, and Congress will decide how much will be appropriate for individual countries and how it can be released," said Paul Oglesby from the US embassy.
