Bratislava, January 20 (TASR) - Slovak President Zuzana Caputova supports the conclusion of the Defence Cooperation Agreement (DCA) with the USA, TASR learnt on Thursday. However, part of the authorisation to sign, which she'll give to a member of the Government within the process of its adoption, will be an interpretation statement of how Slovakia sees the agreement. She did not find any conflict with the Slovak Constitution from constitutional lawyers, therefore she won't address the Constitutional Court. The DCA deal was greenlighted by the Government last week. It still needs to be passed by Parliament and ratified by the president. The DCA would enable American military forces to use Slovakia's Malacky-Kuchyna and Sliac military airbases and other facilities and premises by agreement for a period of ten years. The Government representatives declared that the agreement doesn't endanger Slovakia's sovereignty. The opposition criticises the agreement and talks about creating US military bases in Slovakia, bringing US troops closer to the Russian border and curtailing the competencies of our state authorities. Several former politicians as well as the extra-parliamentary Voice-SD called on the head of state to approach the Constitutional Court with the defence agreement. am/mcs
