The condition of Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, who is currently in a hospital in the town of Banska Bystrica (Western Slovakia), is stable, Slovak Deputy Prime Minister, Defense Minister Robert Kalinak told a press conference following a State Security Council meeting, APA reports citing TASS.

"The minister’s condition was stable this morning," he said.

Still, Fico, who was shot several times, is not out of the woods yet. "Transporting him [to Bratislava] is definitely not an option at this point," the deputy minister said. He added that he talked to Fico, but it was a private conversation and he would not reveal what was said.

An armed attack on Fico took place in the western Slovak town of Handlova on May 15. The politician suffered gunshot wounds and had to undergo surgery.
