Bratislava to host prime ministerial conference on March 18-20

Ahead of the enlargements of NATO and the European Union, Bratislava will host a conference next week of prime ministers of the future member countries of both groupings, Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda confirmed on March 11.

Entitled "Enlarged Europe: New Agenda", the event, which takes place between March 18-20, will focus on issues of security, news wire TASR wrote.

Twelve premiers, two presidents, NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, Commissioner for Enlargement Gunter Verheugen and American Senate delegates will discuss integration and stability in Europe.

The conference comes on the heels of an event three years ago, which was attended by then Czech president Vaclav Havel, who delivered a “great speech”, said Dzurinda, who regretted that the former president would not be present this year.
