NATO delegation visits Slovakia to talk security

Chris Donnelly, the NATO Secretary General's special advisor for central and eastern Europe, arrived in Slovakia on December 9 to present the current NATO agenda after the April Washington Summit and the priorities of new NATO Secretary General George Robertson.

During his three-day visit, Donnelly was to meet Defense Minister Pavol Kanis and his deputy, Jozef Pivarči, to hold talks on building a European security and defense identity. On December 10, Donnelly was to discuss these issues also with Deputy Foreign Minister Ján Figeľ.

Donnelly was accompanied on his visit by NATO Security Office Director Frederick M. Krug, who on December 9 attended a special session of a working group for the protection of classified information called NO PRENAME.

Interior Ministry spokesman Jozef Sitár said that Slovak legislation on classified information is not fully compatible with the system used in NATO member countries. The Interior Ministry has therefore prepared a draft law that redefines four levels of classified information and its protection against misuse, destruction, damage, loss and theft. The draft also introduces new procedures for providing clearance to persons and corporate entities that are in contact with classified information.
