Prime Minister Robert Fico put off a visit to Switzerland for the second time on February 19, this time due to illness.

Fico was scheduled to travel there last November, but had to cancel due to the coalition crisis following the Slovak Land Fund scandal. Fico's spokeswoman, Silvia Glendová, said that his presence at the Cabinet meeting on February 20 was also in doubt at the moment, according to the SITA newswire.
