Bush: Slovakia has place in reconstruction of Iraq

US president George Bush told Slovak president Rudolf Schuster that Slovakia will be a strong member of NATO, in a meeting in Washington yesterday. He also said that the US administration had prepared reconstruction plans for Iraq and that Slovakia would have a role to play.

Bush asked Schuster to thank the families of Slovak soldiers in Kuwait. He also commented on last year's elections.
"President Bush was pleased that the assurances from President Schuster last June that there was no reason for concern [about September elections] were fulfilled. The US president noted that it was due to the wise decision of the people of Slovakia, " said Slovak presidential spokesperson Ján Füle, who attended the meeting between the heads of state.
