GENERAL director of TV Joj and former minister of foreign affairs and culture, Milan Kňažko, received the French distinction of Officier de la Legion d'Honoeur from French Ambassador to Slovakia Georges Vaugier, on September 16.

French President Jacques Chirac decided to honour Kňažko for his long-term involvement in politics, as he has enforced democratic principles and spread French culture in Slovakia. The only other laureate of this prize in Slovakia is Cardinal Ján Chryzostom Korec, who received it in 1993.

The spokesperson for TV Joj, Ľudovít Tóth, informed the SITA news agency that Kňažko has accepted an offer from Paris' Sorbonne University to give eight lectures on the Development of Central-European Territory After 1989 to students of politics and history. The lectures will focus mainly on the development of the Visegrad Four countries (Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic), and will be delivered during next February and March.
