Lukáš Parízek, State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, received today (28 August) Krzysztof Strzałka, designated ambassador of the Polish Republic to Slovakia, at the occasion of presentation of his credentials.


 
State Secretary Parízek highlighted the level of bilateral relations that has been characterized by intense and friendly contacts at all levels. In addition to bilateral ties, he also pointed to multilateral cooperation. The state secretary expressed special thanks for the support extended to Slovakia in relation to its presidency of the Visegrad 4 group and with regards to joint coordination within the discussion on the future of the EU.


 
Both partners positively assessed visible progress made in building transport and energy infrastructure between the two countries, which will contribute in the future to faster economic development and further growth of FDI as well as to increased energy security in the countries of Central Europe. There is great room for improvement between the two countries in the level of trade exchange; to that end all possible and accessible opportunities must be used.


 
In conclusion, Parízek thanked Strzałka for the endorsement by the Polish Sejm of the Resolution of the Polish Republic on the 50th anniversary of the Warsaw Pact troops’ invasion of Czechoslovakia. His Polish partner added that these events had resonated to a great extent also in Poland.


 
To support continuity of good relations, Strzałka presented Parízek with an invitation to the 100th anniversary of independence of the Polish Republic event that will take place on 8 November in the National Theatre in Bratislava and, in a symbolic way, also celebrate 25 years of bilateral relations.
