Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda will meet US President Bill Clinton for a second time in less than two months. Dzurinda was set to leave for a working visit to the US on November 8, when he will discuss the development of Slovak-American relations with the US president.
After discussions at the White House, Dzurinda, Clinton and Czech Prime Minister Miloš Zeman will attend a commemoration of the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Velvet Revolution at Georgetown University, where Clinton will deliver an address marking the occasion.
Dzurinda is also scheduled to pay a working visit to US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. His busy schedule will continue when he unveils a bust of deceased Slovak leader Alexander Dubček (the pillar of the Prague spring movement in 1968) at the Woodrow Wilson Non-Governmental Center.
Dzurinda will attend an exhibition called "Kafka and Prague, Sofer and Bratislava" as part of the festivities planned by the Slovak Embassy in Washington for the celebration of the Velvet Revolution.
Dzurinda's remaining plans include meetings with US business groups, the US Committee for NATO, and representatives of non-governmental organisations.
