Káčer: US visa change likely within two years

SLOVAKIA's Ambassador to Washington, Rastislav Káčer, thinks that the visa restrictions on Slovaks wanting to visit the US could be lifted within two years "if there is good will on both sides", according to the Pravda daily.

In an interview with Pravda, Káčer said he was "very glad that the issue has started to be discussed".

"The US is now starting to understand that for Slovakia this is a sensitive political and emotional question, because equal partnership means having equal relations," Káčer said.

Káčer said Slovak diplomacy is striving for a change in the US visa policy towards Slovakia, together with Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, all members of both NATO and the European Union.
