Minister of Finance Alena Schillerová left without a word from an interview in English with CNN Prima.
According to Schillerova, she never claimed to be “the best in the world” in English and she’s working hard to improve her skills. “Thanks to my great team, I manage my work in Brussels without any problems and I am therefore very sorry for this media hunt,” she added.
“In Brussels, I speak essentially English, I do not use an interpreter. I attend the meetings of the Eurogroup and the Ecofin Council quite regularly,” Schillerová answered on Twitter.
In her public CV on the website of the Office of the Government, the Minister of Finance shows knowledge of English, German and Russian.
