Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda will leave for a working visit to the Czech Republic today (July 15), where he will meet his Czech counterpart, Karel Schwarzenberg, Prime Minister Peter Nečas and Speaker of Parliament Miroslava Nemcová, Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Peter Stano told the TASR newswire on Wednesday, July 14.
“It’s absolutely obvious that my first working visit should involve heading to the Czech Republic. I’m glad that I can carry it out so soon after the appointment of the new Czech government, as well as after taking up office myself. Relations with the Czech Republic are extremely important for us and it’s in our interest to maintain and develop their above-standard quality. I’ll do everything I can to achieve this,” said Dzurinda. Dzurinda has already met Schwarzenberg informally – in Bratislava, on Saturday, July 10, the day he took up his post.
