President Ivan Gašparovič met Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) chairman Richard Sulík on Tuesday, August 9, to discuss the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) and the debt crisis in Europe, the TASR newswire reported, citing the president's spokesman Marek Trubač.

The president asked Sulík for a meeting because he wants to learn the opinions of individual political leaders from both coalition and opposition parties on developments in the financial and economic situation of eurozone countries. According to Gašparovič, concerns that another global crisis is about to hit are justified. Sulík's party has refused to support extending European Union financial rescue packages and increasing their current resources to €440 billion.
