IN SHORT

Alone against a cultural revolution

INTERIOR Minister Vladimír Palko and Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic, both members of Slovakia's Christian Democratic Party, expressed fundamental disagreement in Brussels with mutual recognition of homosexual marriages, the daily SME wrote.

"Slovakia is the only country that voted against using the EU as a cultural revolution against traditional family values," said Palko.

The ministers attended a meeting of the EU justice and interior ministers over security, justice, and interior issues.

Lipšic and Palko have raised several objections to the prepared EU documents, specifically the efforts of EU members to establish a joint EU prosecution office.

They also disagree with the synchronisation of Slovak law as it is applied to family issues with existing EU laws.
