Poll finds that seven out of ten Slovaks oppose a loan for Greece

Seven out of ten Slovaks do not agree with Slovakia providing Greece with financial assistance and only less than a quarter think that Slovakia should help the indebted EU member, according to a poll carried out by TNS SK in May which was published on June 30, the TASR newswire reported. The survey involved a representative sample of 988 respondents over age 18. About 81 percent of them think that Slovakia's standard of living is not high enough to afford to loan money to Greece and 74.9 percent of them think that eurozone countries will only burden themselves with more debts in order to help Greece.
