Slovak and US experts met in Bratislava on September 26 to discuss ways of building their cooperation in the fight against illicit trade in nuclear armaments and materials, the SITA newswire reported.

A joint statement issued by the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry and the US Embassy in Slovakia reported that the talks deepened cooperation between the countries within the global initiative to combat nuclear terrorism launched by the US Department of State.

"Slovakia and the United States have once again acknowledged the need to prevent access of terrorists and other criminals to nuclear materials and exchanged verified methods with the aim to coordinate a national reaction to trafficking in nuclear and other radioactive materials," SITA wrote in quoting part of the statement.

During the meeting experts from the two countries exchanged information on current threats and trends in nuclear trafficking in order to improve investigation and prosecution of nuclear smugglers.
