Slovak Prime Minister Iveta Radičová thinks that a specially convened summit of European leaders to discuss the situation in Libya is necessary.

"The summit is crucial and it is no longer only the situation in Libya that must be dealt with but also the issue of the Arab world in general. It is a serious matter," Radičová told the SITA newswire on Tuesday, March 1. She said that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had already repeatedly expressed Slovakia's stance on developments in Libya. "Slovakia was among the first countries that called for very resolute and unequivocal steps against Libya," the prime minister said.
