IN THE COMING weeks, Czech Defence Minister Jiří Šedivý and Slovak Defence Minister František Kasicky plan to sign an agreement dividing the former Czechoslovakia's military archives between them. The archives contain files chronicling seven decades of the two countries' common communist history.
After signing the agreement, Slovakia will finally gain access to documents kept by the communist military counterintelligence service concerning citizens of Slovakia. The files remained in the Czech Republic after the two countries split peacefully in 1993.
