The Slovak delegation will be headed by the Foreign and European Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák who will be deputised by the Education, Science, Research and Sport Minister Juraj Draxler, according to a decision passed by the government to the TASR newswire on October 14.
The UNESCO (UN Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation) General Conference is held every two years, with this one slated to mark the 70th anniversary of the UNESCO’s founding.
Apart from this, the election of 30 members of the UNESCO Executive Council for 2015 to 2017 shall take place. Slovakia’s four-year mandate in the Council ended in 2013. Moreover, new members of the expert committees will be decided upon, as well as councils of inter-governmental programmes of the organisation.
