Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico said this during presentation of the semi-annual European program of the country in Strasbourg, Radio Liberty reports.

"We must always keep in mind the conflict in Ukraine. The European Union should join a search for diplomatic settlement of the protracted crises and conflicts in the region," Fico said.
