IN SHORT

No change soon in US visa regime

THERE is a chance that the US will cancel its visa regime towards Slovakia, but only if Slovakia secures the existing rules for the travel and free movement of citizens within the US, Rodolphe Vallee, the new American ambassador to Slovakia and Slovak Deputy PM Pál Csáky agreed on September 26.

"However, this isn't a topic for the near future," Csáky added, pointing out that illegal migration of Slovaks in the US still remains the biggest obstacle, the TASR news wire reported.

"Illegal migration will be viewed more strictly, particularly now that Homeland Security and police forced are joined up," he said.

Vallee and Csáky also discussed the issue of political continuity in Slovakia after next year's parliamentary elections.

Csáky informed Vallee about the current position of minorities in Slovakia and human rights issues.
