THE SLOVAK Security Council did not debate the ultimatum of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Ladin urging European countries to pull out of Muslim countries by July 15, Interior Minister Vladimír Palko said on July 6.
The council, he said after the meeting, is concerned with the security of citizens, regardless of statements by certain individuals, the news wire TASR wrote.
Also discussed were transport, defence, and the national security system, including the protection of civilian aviation.
