Slovak-US visa group set up

A FURTHER simplification of visa regulations between the United States and Slovakia is the purpose of a bilateral consular group, which met for the first time on October 1.

Lubor Bystrický, head of the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry's consular department led the Slovak delegation and Daniel Smith, deputy secretary at the US Embassy, represented the US.

The group was established during US Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage's visit to Bratislava last month, the state run news agency TASR wrote.

Meetings will take place four times a year in Bratislava, and will provide scope for discussion on bilateral issues.
