Slovakia's stance on eurobonds negative: Finance Ministry


16:14, November 29, 2011

BRATISLAVA, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- Slovakia's stance on the introduction of stabilisation bonds or so-called eurobonds is more negative than positive, said Finance Ministry State Secretary Branislav Durajka at a session of the parliamentary committee for EU affairs on Monday.

"We don't consider this form of bonds to be a positive measure," said Durajka.

Durajka told the committee about Slovakia's views on the issue before a session of eurozone and EU finance ministers on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Slovakia will be represented by Finance Minister Ivan Miklos at the gathering.

At the same time, Durjaka informed MPs that Slovakia won't be active in discussions on eurobonds and will let Germany speak as the biggest opponent of the idea.

"We think that Germany will push its stance forward vigorously. At this phase, it won't be necessary for us to engage in the discussion. But, of course, if we're invited to express our stance, we'll express a negative one," said Durajka.
