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.

Turkish President Abdullah Gul will most probably come to Slovakia later this year, while Slovak Premier Robert Fico is also planning a trip to Turkey. TASR
