VISEGRAD: Slovakia takes up the poisoned EU chalice

Vít Dostál Vít Dostál / Ed. 2. 7. 2016

Vít Dostál comments for bne IntelliNews on the beginning of the Slovak EU presidency.

Slovakia has some advantages in its favour, most notably its diplomatic corps, which has proved a magnet for talented and ambitious recruits. Many have arrived in a bid to help Slovakia recover from its international isolation under strongman premier Vladimir Meciar in the mid 1990s.

“The Meciar trauma is still the driving force of Slovak policymakers,” says Vít Dostál. “They were the ‘black hole’ of Europe as Madeleine Albright said. That still has an effect on Slovak behaviour.”
