Bilateral talks were held with Slovak Defense Minister Peter Gajdoš, as well as a plenary session chaired by Prime Minister Beata Szydło and the head of the Slovakian government, Robert Fico.

The mechanism of intergovernmental consultations with the Slovak side is a tool for the development of cooperation on different fields , including energy, trade and investment, security, cross-border projects implementation. This format also fits into the broader context of interaction within the Visegrad Group, which aims at coordinating the positions in European policies.

During Polish-Slovak intergovernmental consultations, Minister Antoni Macierewicz met with his counterpart Slovak Defense Minister Petr Gajdoš. The talks focused on cooperation in the field of defense in the Visegrad Group (V4), NATO and the EU, jointly conducted by the NATO Counterintelligence Expertise Center in Cracow and the prospects for cooperation in the defense industry.

Both Ministers defined mutual relations as very good and friendly and expressed satisfaction with the results of the activities of the NATO CEK. They also expressed their support for the further development of the EU Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP), but pointed out that it could not lead to the emergence of a two-speed Europe in the field of defense.
