An Easter agreement should mark a change in the state's attitude towards the forests and the environment, agriculture and environment ministers said when signing it in Bratislava on Easter Monday.
Agriculture Minister Ján Mičovský and Environment Minister Ján Budaj agreed on creating a permanent interdepartmental commission for forests.
Its task is to emphasise the significance of forests and eliminate disputes in their administration with the changing of legislation, the TASR newswire reported.
The heads of both departments are convinced that it is possible to find an agreement in the view of foresters, environmentalists and woodcutters, which would be based on respect for nature and a healthy countryside.
