Slovak compatriots want more support

ETHNIC Slovaks abroad are unhappy with the assistance they receive from their ancestral homeland. The World Association of Slovaks is demanding that the Slovak government adopts a law on state assistance for Slovak compatriots.

They also want a separate chapter in the state budget to provide ethnic Slovaks living outside Slovakia with a satellite broadcast in the Slovak language. A monument commemorating Slovak emigrants is also on the list of the group's demands.

Recent estimates show 1.3 million people living outside Slovakia who claim Slovak ethnicity. Compared to 1991, the number has dropped by 1.4 million, daily SME claims.
