Slovakia's joining the European Union and NATO will not reflect on relations between Bratislava and Moscow, said Slovak President Rudolf Schuster. On Thursday, he met with head of the Russian Audit Chamber Sergei Stepashin, who arrived in Bratislava to participate in the celebrations of the 10th anniversary of the similar control and financial department of Slovakia.
The Slovak president came out for the development of business relations with Russia. According to him, the forthcoming visit to Moscow by the Slovak prime minister will contribute to this.
Following the summit in Riga on November 30, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg explained how the alliance could respond to Russia's 'new aggression against Ukraine.'
