Kukan discusses EU entry in Dublin

IRELAND is interested in close cooperation with Slovakia both in the final stage of its EU accession process and afterwards, Irish officials told Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan during his one-day visit to Dublin on February 11.

Kukan first met Speaker of the Irish Parliament Rory O'Hanion, then the chairman of the parliamentary committee for the EU, Gay Mitchell, and the chairman of the parliamentary committee for foreign relations, Michael Woods, with whom he discussed mainly EU-related issues.

The Irish representatives highlighted the benefits EU membership had brought Ireland, and said they hoped Slovakia would have a similar experience after EU entry .
