Slovakia plans to open three new embassies abroad

Slovakia is expected to open three new embassies in Moldova, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates, according to a Foreign Affairs Ministry report on the situation of Slovak diplomatic mission offices abroad in 2012, submitted at the government session on Wednesday, October 3.

Slovakia is expected to open three new embassies in Moldova, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates, according to a Foreign Affairs Ministry report on the situation of Slovak diplomatic mission offices abroad in 2012, submitted at the government session on Wednesday, October 3.

Slovakia is the only V4 country not to have a diplomatic mission in Moldova, and has so far dealt with questions related to Moldova via the country's embassy in Romania, which is viewed as insufficient by the ministry. The need to open the missions in Tunisia and United Arab Emirates is chiefly due to economic reasons, the TASR newswire wrote.

Conversely, Slovakia will close its embassy in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, with the powers entitled to the office transferred to another representative Slovak office in the country. In addition, according to the report Slovakia will not open a general consulate in Manchester (the United Kingdom), the establishing of which was approved by the previous government of Iveta Radčová (2010-12) in 2011. The current administration of the Foreign Affairs Ministry claims that such a project will be too financially demanding.
