Todd: Recent recalls and accusations harmed Slovakia's image

Recalls of the defence minister and the head of security office NBU, as well as accusations that "a group", according to PM Mikuláš Dzurinda, works against the state and his Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), "resulted in certain changes in Slovakia's image" said British ambassador to Slovakia Ric Todd.

The recent developments also caused doubts among foreign investors. Todd said the latter might now think more carefully before placing their money in Slovakia. Todd told them "there is no reason to change [your] attitude".
