JNS.org – The Foreign Minister of Slovakia, Ivan Korcok, announced on Wednesday the opening of the Slovak Institute in Jerusalem on Sept. 1.

“Slovakia is deepening relations with #Israel,” Korcok wrote on Twitter. He added that Slovakia continues to support the resumption of peace talks to reach a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Israeli Foreign Minister and Alternate Prime Minister Yair Lapid responded, also via Twitter, saying “your important decision” to open the institute “is a symbol of your friendship and it will serve to strengthen the relations between our countries.”

Slovakia and Israel signed a $180 million defense deal in January for the purchase of 17 radar systems produced by Israel Aerospace Industries.
