Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych will visit Slovakia on Friday, June 17. Yanukovych will meet Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič and Prime Minister Iveta Radičová, the SITA newswire reported, citing information supplied by the Embassy of Ukraine. The visit will be a follow-up to Gašparovič's visit to Ukraine in October 2010.
"President of Ukraine Yanukovych will lay a wreath at the Slavín Memorial to pay tribute to the memory of heroes who died in Slovakia during World War II. He will also have a presentation at the Slovak-Ukrainian Economic Forum," the Embassy of Ukraine said in a press release. During the visit, several bilateral interstate treaties are to be signed, as well as inter-regional agreements on cooperation between regions of both countries.
In the second half of 2011, several Slovak representatives plan to visit Ukraine: Prime Minister Radičová, Foreign Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda as well as Labour Minister Jozef Mihál have all scheduled visits to Slovakia's eastern neighbour.
