Slovakia insists on joining Schengen by October 1, 2007

SLOVAKIA, along with the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary, will insist on the removal of border controls with the EU15 states as of the originally-planned date, October 1, 2007, Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš said September 13.

Kubiš was responding to the European Commission’s plan to delay the entry of the Visegrad Four states into the border-free Schengen zone. He said he views such attempts to change the terms of integration of the V4 states into the Schengen zone very negatively and as at odds with the previous agreement.

He added that the issue will be discussed by the V4 foreign ministers during an upcoming UN General Assembly in New York.
