ACCORDING to Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič there are no secret American prisons for Iraqi terrorists in Slovakia, nor has the US submitted any proposals concerning this issue, the TASR news wire reported.
"We wouldn't allow it anyway," Gašparovič said at a joint news conference with Romanian President Traian Basescu on November 9, which was devoted mainly to Slovak-Romanian issues.
"Slovakia and Romania are allies in the sphere of solving problems that are important for the world. I think that Iraq is still in a position that is not able to solve its own problems," Gašparovič added.
Basescu also ruled out the existence of secret prisons in Romania, as the original information of secret US prisons only specified somewhere in Central Europe.
The information about secret CIA prisons was published by The Washington Post. The US newspaper published an article claiming that the US secret service has such clandestine jails in Eastern Europe.
