Slovakia would receive a boost in diplomatic prestige if it obtains non-permanent membership for Slovak President Ivan Gašparoviè to the United Nations Security Council for 2006-7, the daily SME wrote.

According to political analysts, non-permanent membership benefits are limited to political capital.
