President supports Slovak expatriates

PRESIDENT Ivan Gašparovič said that he was prepared to oversee the fulfillment of foreign Slovaks' justified demands on their country, the news wire SITA wrote.

The president declared his support on July 2 in front of more than 100 participants in the standing conference of the Slovak Republic, held in Bratislava with the participation of Slovak expatriates from over 20 countries.

Representatives of the Slovak expatriates feel that their opinions are permanently treated as a marginal topic by relevant authorities.

The president supports the creation of an Office for Slovak Expatriates and amendments to the laws on Slovak expatriates.
