European commissioner adds support for referendum

European Commissioner Günter Verheugen called on Slovaks to participate in next week's referendum on entry to the EU after a meeting with Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda yesterday.

"It is, of course, the most important decision about the future of the country since independence, not only for the current generation, but also for the children of their children," he said.

Verheugen refused to be drawn on the government's referendum campaign, which has drawn much domestic criticism.
