BRATISLAVA (REUTER) - The Slovak government launched a campaign on Friday to give Slovaks the facts on NATO`s enlargement plans, but it will not stress either advantages or disadvantages of membership. "We are not about to persuade people, only to give them the facts (on NATO)," Emil Kuchar, head of the political section of the Foreign Ministry, told a news conference. Slovakia insists it wants to be among the first new members of the alliance. However, some diplomats have said its chances are waning after the European Union and United States expressed concern over its democratic credentials. The campaign will consist mainly of debate and discussion on state television and radio. Some senior politicians have also appeared less enthusiastic about membership of late and opinion polls show a similar picture. Asked last December, only 35.1 percent said they supported membership and 25.5 percent were against, compared to a poll in June in which 44 percent supported NATO membership with 30 percent against. NATO will hold a summit in July to nominate new members. The Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary are seen as the leading contenders.
