Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico will have dinner with Russian President Vladimir Putin on August 25.
The main topic will be the Nord Stream gas pipeline project, Fico said at the August 23 press conference in Sobrance (Košice Region), the Denník N daily reported on its website.
Though the prime minister did not reveal more details at the press conference, the Government’s Office specified on August 24 that Fico and Putin will meet at 19:00 CET. They will discuss current topics regarding the bilateral cooperation between Slovakia and Russia, the TASR newswire reported.
Fico and some of his government ministers are currently touring the towns in eastern Slovakia, struggling with high jobless rates. They have already approved action plans aimed at reducing the number of unemployed in the poor districts for Sabinov (Prešov Region), promising to allocate altogether €82 million from both public and private sources, and for Sobrance, allocating altogether €69 million, as reported by TASR.
