Quote of the Week:


"We will not tolerate extremism even for a minute, there's no need to. We don't have to be challenged to do this, we know what extremism is. It's written in the government's programme, and it's also part of my mental makeup. I will be supporting immediate and strict police action against expressions of extremism, and in this both the interior minister and the president of the police corps will have my full support. I refuse to let some bunch of half-crazy people damage Slovakia's good name around the world."


Prime Minister Robert Fico, speaking at the celebration of the 62nd anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising on August 29 in Banská Bystrica
