Bush comes to Slovakia to acknowledge the Slovakia's progress

PRIME Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda told the daily Národná Obroda that he thinks he and US President George Bush are friends.

"I really feel that we are friends and I am comfortable in his company. He is a very open and honest man who clearly formulates his opinions and has a firm character," Dzurinda said.

However, the prime minister explained that the main reason for Bush's visit was to acknowledge the progress that the country has made over the past decade.
