Dzurinda offers help at EUROMED

SLOVAK Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda attended a conference of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, EUROMED, in Barcelona. The attending prime ministers agreed that a free trade zone should be formed between the European Union and the Mediterranean countries (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey) by 2010, the SITA news agency wrote.

Dzurinda said the proposal is important for the further development of economic relations between EU member states and non-EU Mediterranean countries.

Slovakia wishes to be involved in the development of such cooperation, the PM said, hoping that his country can also find its place in these markets. Slovakia could also offer its experience in building a market economy and democracy, he added.
