State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs SR, Ivan Korčok, met with the directors of the Slovak Institutes in the premises of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs SR, today (10 October 2017). The goal of the meeting was to evaluate the activities of the institutes and discuss the planned activities with emphasis on preparations for events related to the politically and historically important anniversaries that will be commemorated by Slovakia in 2018. An important topic was also the issue of the role and position of cultural presentation within diplomacy. In that regard the state secretary noted that “the Slovak Institutes are a natural and inseparable part of Slovak diplomacy. They present an effective instrument for presentation of Slovakia and its culture abroad and concurrently help developing close political, societal and economic ties”.


The meeting took place during the annual meeting of the directors of the Slovak Institutes that operate in Berlin, Budapest, Moscow, Paris, Prague, Rome, Warsaw and Vienna.
