Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico and Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš are to leave for Lisbon on December 13 to take part in the signing of the EU Treaty, the Government Office's press and information department announced.

The Treaty changes and amends the Treaty on the European Union and the Treaty Establishing the European Community. Its signing follows the successful completion of the Inter-governmental Conference at an informal session of the European Council held in Lisbon on October 18. The signing of the Treaty will be the climax of the Portuguese presidency of the EU (covering the latter half of 2007).

Fico is due to move on from Lisbon to Brussels on December 14, where he will attend a European Council session along with prime ministers and presidents of other EU-member states, where the Council will welcome the expansion of the Schengen zone and will discuss issues of security and justice, the implementation of migration policies, the strengthening of police and legal co-operation and the fight against terrorism.
