Slovak Ambassador to Germany Ivan Korčok said that joint participation of the prime ministers from both of the states that emerged from the Czechoslovak Federal Republic confirms the countries’ good relations. He emphasised that this will be the first time that German Chancellor Merkel will receive the prime ministers from both countries at her official residence.

The event is being planned by Slovak and Czech embassies in Germany.
