The list of participants hasn't been announced yet, but it is thought that it could include German Foreign Affairs Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Czech Premier Bohuslav Sobotka and Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann, according to the Pravda daily.

“We’re working on the participation of German, Slovak and Ukrainian representatives, both from western and eastern parts [of Ukraine], and from the Russian Federation,” Fico said, as quoted by Pravda.

Sme contacted the politicians and found out that Steinmeier or Sobotka do not plan to come

The conference is organised by the ASA Institute, a project led by Smer MP Vladimir Faič who declined to specify who is expected to attend.

“I do not dare to say who else will come to Košice,” Faič told the Sme. “It’s still in the works.”
