The Hungarian President is expected to visit Bratislava after receiving an invitation from his Slovak counterpart, Ivan Gasparovic, at a Visegrad Four (V4) presidential summit in Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic in early November.

Slovakia is set to host the V4 prime ministers in February, with Slovak PM Iveta Radicova meeting Donald Tusk (Poland), Petr Nečas (the Czech Republic) and Viktor Orbán (Hungary) to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the V4. The meeting on February 15 should also be attended by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann, and Ukrainian Premier Mykola Azarov.

Bratislava will host another V4 meeting in March, this time between the foreign affairs ministers. In addition, member countries of the Eastern Partnership and the German chief of diplomacy, Guido Westerwelle, are scheduled to participate.
