Slovakia's foreign minister, Miroslav Lajcak, urges politicians in the European Union to show more respect when discussing Turkey after returning from a short trip to Ankara.
"Turkey is a strategic partner for the European Union and plays an exceptionally important role in solving the migration problem," he says. "It's fundamentally better to engage in dialogue and speak openly than send messages towards one another through the media."
Lajcak has invited a Turkish representative to a summit in Bratislava next month between EU foreign ministers, the ministry confirms.
