In the morning, the couple will be welcomed by Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič and his wife Silvia. An official lunch at the Government Office hosted by Prime Minister Robert Fico will follow.

Fico and Klaus are expected to discuss Slovak-Czech relations, opportunities for boosting co-operation, and current international affairs, the Government Office press department said on January 7. The Slovak and Czech presidential couples will meet pupils from Bratislava's Tomášikova Street secondary school in the afternoon. Following an official dinner hosted by Gašparovič, the Czech delegation will attend a play called “Tančiareň” (Ballroom) at the Slovak National Theatre.

On January 11, Klaus will accompany Gašparovič on a visit to Topoľčianky Castle (Nitra region), which once served as a summer residence for presidents of the former Czechoslovakia. They will also call in at the National Stud Farm, the European Bison Reservation and a wine-producing company in Topoľčianky. The Czech delegation will leave Slovakia at around 6 p.m that day. TASR
