The Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Warsaw
The Slovak Republic remains a full member of the Visegrad Four. This is our first choice and primary interest. We do not choose between the V4 and the European Union; we want to be a member of the recognized and well-established V4 – an integral part of the EU. The V4 is a reputable brand and the best-functioning regional cooperation platform in Central Europe. Naturally, it does not mean that we must have the same opinion on all issues but it is valuable that we can speak openly to each other. This was stated today (5 September) by Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic Miroslav Lajčák at Poland´s Ambassadors Conference in Warsaw, to which he was invited by his Polish counterpart Witold Waszczykowski. Lajčák devoted a large part of his address to the role of the UN General Assembly and the UN Security Council in armed conflict prevention and resolving international issues.
