Deal on bridge linking Slovakia and Hungary in fall

Slovak Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda and his Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orban will sign an agreement September 16 to complete an unfinished bridge which will link Štúrovo in Slovakia with the Hungarian city of Esztergom, the leaders announced August 27.

The bridge over the Danube will cost 20 million euros. Both parties will apply for five million euros in assistance from EU funds, and will strive to complete the bridge by 2001.

At their meeting, the prime ministers also set a preliminary agenda for the upcoming October Visegrad Four meeting in the High Tatras. "EU integration, trade development, and unwanted migration" will be the main topics of discussion, they announced.
