Slovak Ambassador visited IUS

The Ambassador of the Slovak Republic to the Bosnia and Herzegovina, H. E. Mr. Martin Kačo, visited the International University of Sarajevo on 19.4.2018. He met with students along with Dr. Peter Plenta, Dr. Joseph J. Kaminski, and Dr. Jared Bell from the International Relations Department.

This is the first time a Slovak Ambassador has visited the University.  The main purpose of ambassador's visit was to give a guest lecture to students in Professor Plenta's Security Studies course. This visit also provided the opportunity for Mr. Kačo to learn more about the university and to discuss possibilities of cooperation.   

His talk focused on European foreign and security policy towards Bosnia and the Western Balkans as well as current security challenges facing the world more generally. The meeting with the ambassador was an excellent opportunity for our students to ask questions about the situation in Bosnia, attitudes, and actions of the Slovak Republic, the European Union, and NATO, relations with the neighbours as well as Schengen visa applications.
