Russian envoy promises safe oil delivery

SLOVAKIA need not worry about crude oil deliveries from Russia, said Igor Suvalov, special envoy of Russian President Vladmír Putin.

Suvalov assured Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič that the Russian government had the situation surrounding oil company Yukos under control.

Yukos is Slovakia's biggest supplier of crude oil and some have voiced concern that the company's financial problems could interrupt its deliveries.

Marek Trubač, spokesman for the Slovak president, informed media about Russia's assurances, the news agency SITA wrote.

Suvalov attended the official celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising in Banská Bystrica on Sunday.
