Slovakia takes over the EU Presidency
On Tuesday, the Government of Slovakia presented its presidency programme. The UK can’t only profit without fulfilling obligations, Slovak Foreign Minister Lajcak emphasised. Robert Rico, Slovakia’s Prime Minister called for a thorough rethinking in the EU following the Brexit. In his opinion it’s high time for politicians to realise that they failed to explain the benefits of the European project to the European citizens. State secretary Denisa Sakova spoke out against distributing refugees on the basis of country-specific quota. She states that another solution has to be found.
A special summit will take place in Bratislava on 16 September 2016.
