US PRESIDENT George Bush may hold a public speech in Bratislava’s Hviezdoslavovo Square on February 24, according to a preliminary summit itinerary obtained by the daily SME.
The plan might change, however, and Bush may hold the speech in the historical Slovak National Theatre building, also on Hviezdoslavovo Square.
Juraj Tomaga, spokesman for the Slovak Foreign Ministry, said, however, that the programme was not definitive and that several versions existed.
Spokeswoman for the US embassy in Bratislava Barbara Zigli said that there was "no official programme" as yet.
Bush is scheduled to land in Bratislava on February 23 where top Slovak officials will welcome him.
