Stricter border controls prior to Bush-Putin summit

WITH the approach of the Bush-Putin summit in late February in Bratislava, Slovakia’s border police are taking stringent measures at all border crossings and airports.

"Since police will screen passports and check vehicles, we would like to give notice to citizens that they can expect queues forming at the border crossings," Interior Ministry spokesperson Ľubomíra Miklovičová told the TASR news agency.

The Bush-Putin summit will take place in Bratislava February 24. President Bush arrives in Bratislava February 23, and will meet Slovakia's representatives prior to the summit.
