Slovak delegation at EU-Africa summit headed by ambassador to Libya

The Slovak delegation at the third EU-Africa summit in Tripoli on November 29 and 30 is headed by the Slovak ambassador to Libya, Marian Záhora, though originally it should have been led by Foreign Affairs Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, the TASR newswire was informed. Because Dzurinda is accompanying President Ivan Gasparovic at the OSCE summit in Kazakhstan in mid-week, Záhora was selected as the substitute head of the delegation. The two-day summit at the level of head of states and governments, with European Council President Herman van Rompuy in attendance, focuses on investment, economic growth and the creation of new jobs.

The host of the summit, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, threatened at the beginning of the event that Libya will loosen up its measures deterring illegal immigration if his country does not receive financial and technical help. With around 80 of the world's representatives in attendance, Gaddafi said that "the Christian white continent of Europe will then go black".
