Lipšic and Napolitano discussed various issues related to international security and global terrorism.

"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.
