Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič on October 23, the second day of his three-day visit to Spain, met with Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero in Madrid. Both officials discussed intensifying Slovak-Spanish bilateral relations and co-operation, with an accent on economy.
Gašparovič noted that Slovakia was enjoying huge economic growth, and that the country should join the Schengen zone in a few weeks and the Euro-zone as of January 1, 2009. During the talks, both men expressed their satisfaction about agreement on the EU Reform Treaty, which the leaders of the EU's 27 member states agreed upon in Lisbon last week. TASR
