Campaign to boost support for NATO

A government campaign to boost public support for Slovakia's planned entry into NATO will be launched in various media outlets on September 29.

The campaign, organised by the Mayer/McCann-Erickson agency, will cost Sk24 million (€585,365) and will be covered by the PRENAME fund for entry preparation and the defence and foreign ministries, news wire TASR reported.

According to a poll by Gabal Analysis & Consulting, more than 63 percent of the citizens agree with NATO membership, however 65 percent think that the alliance is similar to the former Warsaw Pact.
