Slovak Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic and US Secretary for Homeland Security Janet Napolitano agreed in Washington that cooperation between the Slovak and US security forces is at an excellent level, Interior Ministry spokesman Gábor Grendel told the TASR newswire on July 16. Lipšic and Napolitano discussed various issues related to international security and global terrorism. The US expressed interest in detailed information on the technology that Slovakia uses to protect its eastern border with Ukraine as the US faces a similar challenge of illegal immigration from Mexico. Slovakia and the USA have been assisting each other for several years by exchanging security information.

"The USA is among Slovakia's key allies not only in international organisations, but also at the level of police forces and other sections of the Interior Ministry. Our cooperation seems to be gaining new dimensions," Lipšic said during his working visit.

Lipšic invited Napolitano to visit Slovakia to sign an agreement on more intensive cooperation in crime prevention.
