Slovakia's Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš met European Economic and Social Committee President Dimitris Dimitriadis in Bratislava for talks focused on the country's entry into the Eurozone on January 1, 2009, the ministry told the TASR newswire on June 3.
Both agreed that Slovakia would be responsible for a successful and smooth switchover to the euro. They also said that having a 1- or 2-euro banknote could make the currency more popular. (The smallest euro note is a five and the largest 500 - ed. note). TASR
