Barak's official visit to Slovakia will take place just a few days after his Slovak counterpart Ľubomír Galko visited Israel. While he was in Tel Aviv, the two ministers discussed options for co-operation in the fight against international terrorism, in the defence industry, and in the operations to defuse unexploded devices. During his three-day visit, Minister Galko also informed the Israeli side about the austerity measures introduced by the Slovak Government in order to consolidate the country’s public finances.
