VISITNG Czech Defence Minister Jaroslav Tvrdík was excited to receive an unusual gift from his Slovak counterpart, Jozef Stank, at their meeting on May 15.
Stank gave Tvrdík a hockey stick and a Slovak hockey jersey bearing the signatures of some of Slovakia's World Hockey Championship gold medal team, which had won the annual tournament on May 11. "It's a fantastic gift. I think the whole of Slovakia now envies me for them," Tvrdík said.
