The Slovak and German governments have very similar attitudes towards the issues of European integration as well as the solutions to the financial crisis, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico said after a meeting held on July 3.
“We agreed that in future we need more Europe rather than less, especially in the eurozone,” said Merkel, as quoted by SITA, adding that both governments are open to further integration of the EU.
Fico stressed that there are no open political questions between Slovakia and Germany, and that the attitudes and opinions of both countries on the most important bilateral and multilateral issues are growing very close.
Fico and Merkel also found common ground over financial help for indebted countries, saying that while “on the one hand, solidarity is important, on the other hand it is necessary to do your homework”, SITA wrote.
