SERBIAN Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic visited Slovakia on September 21 and after meeting him, Slovakia’s PM Robert Fico said Serbia can rely on absolute support by the Slovak government for Serbia’s integration into the European Union, the SITA newswire reported.

Fico noted that Slovakia separates the issue of integration of Serbia into the EU from the question of the status of Kosovo. Slovakia has not recognised the independence of Kosovo and Fico said he does not see any reason to change this position.

Fico said the stance of the Slovak government towards Kosovo is not any reflection of sympathies towards Serbia and does not have anything in common with the country’s relations to policies of the US or Russia. Slovakia will not recognise Kosovo in order to protect its national sovereign interests, which Fico said are under threat by the ‘dangerous politics’ of the Hungarian Coalition Party, the SITA newswire reported, as concerns have been expressed that the Hungarian minority might argue for independence of Hungarian-populated regions of southern Slovakia.
