The opposition SDKÚ-DS) sharply criticised junior ruling coalition SNS leader Ján Slota for referring to Hungary's King St.Stephen as "a Hungarian clown" in the presence of the prime minister.

SDKÚ-DS chairman Mikuláš Dzurinda wondered why Fico, who speaks so enthusiastically and respectfully of Slovak history, did not react to Slota's primitive and vulgar evaluation of not only Hungarian, but also Slovak history, the SITA newswire wrote.

SDKÚ-DS Vice-Chairman and former foreign affairs minister Eduard Kukan is not surprised that Hungary cancelled its planned meeting of prime ministers of the two countries.

"We consider the behavior of SNS MPs, and the way the Speaker of Parliament and Prime Minister reacted to this behaviour, incompatible with the values of democracy and rules of parliamentary democracy," Dzurinda declared.
