AFP - Slovakia said Monday that Russia had warned it might halt oil supplies through Ukraine to three European Union countries over a price dispute.
Quoting a letter from the European Commission -- the 27-nation EU's executive arm -- the government said Russia had announced "the possibility of suspending oil supplies to... Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic."
"The reason is allegedly unresolved problems between the Russian Federation and Ukraine concerning oil transit," the government said.
Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico has called an emergency meeting of his country's security cabinet, it added.
