According to Mikloš, Ukraine has found itself in a difficult situation and has to overcome the crisis. There is also a consensus that the post of finance minister should be held by a person with experience of similar reforms. Slovakia is one of the most successful countries in this area, he says, adding he was country's deputy prime minister and minister of finance, when Slovakia was carrying out such reforms.
He recalled that in 1998, when he came to power, Slovakia was in a similar situation with today's Ukraine.
Another reason behind Slovak politician's consent to accept the offer was a meeting with Balcerowicz (Polish economist-reformer) and Mikuláš Dzurinda (former Slovakian PM) - his friends and advisors to President Poroshenko - where they came to conclusion that it would be helpful if Mikloš assumed the post.
He also said that Balcerowicz is currently in talks with Poroshenko on a greater role in promoting reforms in Ukraine than he had previously.
