Energy security and EU integration are expected to dominate the agenda of a meeting between Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on July 3 in Berlin, the TASR newswire reported.

"We'll certainly discuss the planned sale of 49 percent of [Slovak gas utility] SPP shares," Fico said at a briefing on Monday, as quoted by TASR.

Fico repeated that his government has had long-time reservations about the French and German shareholders of SPP [E.ON Ruhrgas and Gdf Suez], especially when it comes to their proposals on gas price increases for households "which go against people".

Fico also said he hopes for an SPP shareholder who would be more "tactful" with respect to Slovak consumers.
