    "We are counting on close co-operation between Poland's presidency of the Visegrad Group and Slovakia's presidency of the Council of the European Union," Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski said after his meeting with his Slovakian counterpart Miroslav Lajčák.

    The main topics of today's talks in Bratislava between the foreign ministers of Poland and Slovakia were bi-lateral and regional co-operation, current European challenges and security policy. "We are interested in identifying potential areas of co-operation within the defence sphere. Our region must create realistic deterrence and defence capabilities. This will also be reflected in our priorities for the NATO Summit in Warsaw," Minister Waszczykowski said.

     

    The ministers also discussed issues relating to Poland's presidency of the Visegrad Group, which starts in July this year, as well as Slovakia's presidency of the Council of the European Union.

     

    During his visit to Slovakia, Minister Waszczykowski also met with Slovakia's president Andrej Kiska. Their talks covered bi-lateral co-operation between Poland and Slovakia.

     

    Minister Waszczykowski and President Kiska also touched on the issue of security, in particular the upcoming NATO Summit in Warsaw as well as the current European agenda. 

     

    While in Bratislava, Poland's head of diplomacy also met with Beata Jaczewska, Executive Director of the International Visegrad Fund.
