The Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan will arrive in Slovakia on Wednesday, February 6, to discuss mutual relations, boosting cooperation and current issues of the European and international agenda with his Slovak counterpart, Robert Fico.

The TASR newswire wrote that both prime ministers are due to participate in a Slovak-Turkish economic forum where they will deliver speeches. Apart from this, Erdogan will be received by Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič and Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška.

The spite of the suspended accession talks, Slovakia supports the further convergence of Turkey and the European Union. The main problem is the dispute concerning the island of Cyprus, which is divided between Greece and Turkey. The negative stance of France and Germany are also viewed as hindering Turkey’s accession process.
