DESPITE fears that conflict will arise between Prime Minister Robert Fico and new President Andrej Kiska, the head of state claims that no such developments have taken place.

"We both feel responsibility over the country and approach our mutual relations accordingly. We're aware that we're two highest constitutional officials with considerable influence," Kiska said in an interview with the Nový Čas daily on August 10 as cited by the TASR newswire.

Fico and Kiska arrived at an arrangement to meet continuously on a monthly basis. Kiska claims that all their meetings have been “rather constructive” so far.

"I'm really glad that these meetings take place because tension and conflict often begins among people due to them failing to meet and discuss their respective opinions," he added as quoted by TASR
