Kukan: Visa-waiver should be extended

SLOVAKIA wants to further liberalize the visa regime with the former Yugoslav republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Foreign Affairs Minister Eduard Kukan said at a March 14 meeting with Amira Kapetanovic, Bosnia and Herzegovina's ambassador to Slovakia.

The meeting was held to mark the end of Kapetanovic's mission.

Kukan said that Slovakia positively values the regular unilateral waiver of the visa during the summer for Slovak tourists, the TASR news agency wrote.

"On the other hand, we think that Bosnia and Herzegovina should have the same approach towards all EU states. That means cancelling the visa regime with Slovakia too," said Kukan.

The representatives concurred on the "splendid" development of cooperation between the two countries. Kukan pointed out that Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of Slovakia's foreign policy priorities and that Slovakia supports its integration efforts regarding the European Union and NATO.
