BRATISLAVA, Slovakia — Slovakia's governing coalition has failed to strike a deal to prevent the collapse of a continentwide plan to rescue heavily indebted European nations.
Prime Minister Iveta Radicova said her four-party coalition, which met for three hours Monday, was unable to agree on a compromise deal.
But she says the coalition's talks will continue Tuesday, the day Slovakia's Parliament is scheduled to vote on the EU bailout fund.
Slovakia, a tiny nation of 5.5 million, would contribute about one percent or €7.7 billion and be one of the last eurozone countries to vote on the fund's expansion.
