Obsitnik, speaking at a press conference in Košice on Thursday, September 25, said "I have no information as yet. We are waiting until October for confirmation of results on whether Slovakia reached less than ten percent of rejected visa applications as of September 30. In addition to this, two more agreements need to be signed. Then it will be up to President Bush to announce the cancellation of the visa duty for Slovakia and other countries." SITA
