Among the positives of Slovakia's entry to the Schengen zone will be unrestricted movement around Europe, but it could also result in a rise in crime, Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič said on December 20.

"Our entry is very positive, although it will bring certain problems pertaining to migration and a possible increase in crime in the country," he said.

According to him, this is not just a problem for Slovakia. All governments will have to be vigilant, he added.
