Slovakia will become a patron country for supervising the democratisation process in Tunisia, said Foreign Affairs Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda on Thursday, June 30, adding that Slovakia will play the role of advisor.

Slovak diplomats will provide consultations on the organisation of political life, co-operation between the state and civil society, and the drawing-up of reforms. Dzurinda placed particular emphasis on the democratisation of state institutions, and reforms in the sphere of the economy, pension system, health care and education. "Countries that have transformed themselves from communism to free societies have unique experience and this is where they can be vital," Dzurinda said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Dzurinda left on Thursday evening for talks with the unofficial 'Community of Democracies' group in Lithuania, where Slovakia is set to take up its new role.
