SIS committee overseeing summit security

THE SLOVAK Intelligence Service (SIS) appointed a control and coordination committee to evaluate and process information about security as soon as the Bush-Putin summit in Bratislava was known about, the TASR news service reported.

"We are in constant touch with the secret services of NATO member states and partner secret services," SIS spokesman Vladimír Šimko said.

According to Šimko, the SIS is taking all necessary measures to protect Slovakia from possible terrorist attack.
