Slovakia should remain part of the eurozone in the finance minister’s view.

"Of course, one must stand ready for all possible scenarios but for now, it's necessary to do our utmost to keep the euro alive and strong," he told the TASR newswire.

His coalition partner, Speaker of Parliament Richard Sulík (SaS) sees things differently, however writing in the December 13 edition of Hospodárske Noviny daily: "It's about time that Slovakia stops blindly trusting the talk of eurozone leaders and drafts a plan B."
