U.S. Steel criticises Csáky

U.S.STEEL Košice representatives have objected to the statements recently made by Deputy PM for Integration Pál Csáky regarding the ongoing talks with the European Commission on the overproduction of steel in the eastern Slovak factory.

The EU may cut its assistance to Slovakia by up to €800 million (€19.54 million) if the dispute is not resolved, the Slovak daily SME wrote on February 9.

Csáky said recently that Slovak officials could not defend the interests of a private firm in the face of a threat of sanctions against the whole nation.

Representatives of the firm said, however, that it was not good for the PM to publicly discuss ongoing talks. They also said that the company had never had a conflict with the Slovak cabinet regarding the issue.
