Slovakia and Turkey will look for ways to ease visa requirements between the two countries, Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Ján Kubiš and his Turkish counterpart Ali Babacan agreed in Bratislava on May 28.

During the meeting, the head of Slovak diplomacy noted that Slovakia, as a member of the Schengen zone, has to keep to certain rules, the TASR newswire wrote.

The agenda of the ministers' talks also included bilateral relations, accession negotiations between the European Union and Turkey, regional issues and energy security. Both politicians referred to bilateral relations as excellent.
