Representatives from EU member states have agreed with the prime minister that tensions between Moscow and Kiev are needed. The European Union must do everything in its power to avoid conflicts that need to be dealt with diplomatically. At the United Nations Global Migration Pact, the Prime Minister's Ambassador familiarizes himself with the position of their government in this document. The prime minister has confirmed his opinion about illegal migration, which he considers a security risk.
The Friends of Cohesion Meeting will be held on Thursday (November 29).

The meeting at Bratislava Castle was also held on the occasion of the Slovak Presidency in the Vyehrad Group.
The ambassadors also expressed satisfaction that the violation agreement had been reached and expressed confidence that each Union country would approve this agreement as soon as possible in their parliament. The prime minister stressed that the only alternative for the European Union and NATO was for the Slovak Republic and it was necessary for EU leaders to discuss as much as possible about the benefits of membership in these organizations.
