A COOPERATIVE effort between Slovaks and Poles will make it easier for citizens to cross the Slovak-Polish border, according to the news wire TASR.
Slovak Prime Minister Mikulas Dzurinda and his Polish counterpart, Marek Belka, agreed to set up the working committee.
Since the current Slovak-Polish agreement on small border traffic is inconsistent between citizens, Dzurinda asked the Slovak Interior Ministry State Secretary and the current chairman of the Joint Slovak-Polish Commission for Cross-Border Cooperation Martin Pado to seek redress of the situation.
The new measures should help change the Slovak-Polish border to a Schengen-type arrangement, making it much easier for citizens to cross between the countries.
