PM is looking forward to EU council meeting

Prime Minister Robert Fico expects a "heated discussion" about the political consequences of high food and fuel prices at the upcoming meeting of the European Council in Brussels.

Prime Minister Robert Fico expects a "heated discussion" about the political consequences of high food and fuel prices at the upcoming meeting of the European Council in Brussels.

He said at a meeting with Parliament's Committee for European Affairs that it was gradually coming to light that it was not purely objective factors behind price hikes, as was believed until recently, but also various "speculators."

Fico is glad that higher food and fuel prices are no longer considered the problem of individual states but are receiving attention from supranational organisations.

For Slovakia, the most important decision expected from the European Council's meeting on June 19-20 will be its admission to the Eurozone. However, this decision will be a mere formality, as Slovakia has already met all the requirements. SITA
