Dzurinda to talk visas with Bush

SLOVAK PM Mikuláš Dzurinda wants to talk about getting rid of the US visa requirement for Slovaks at an upcoming meeting with US President George W. Bush on March 13.

The Slovak leader will meet Bush in the White House. Dzurinda said that with early elections in Slovakia on the horizon, his trip to the US would be a short one.

"But I'm not concealing the motive [of the trip]. A small but important step can be taken on the path towards abolishing visas," the PM said, as reported by the Pravda daily.
