The speaker of the Slovak parliament, Pavol Paška, and the speaker of the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech parliament, Miloslav Vlček, met in Martin on October 30 to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of the Slovak Nation, which is considered to have been of key importance in establishing Czechoslovakia in 1918.
The two laid wreaths on a monument in the cemetery in Martin in honour of significant personalities who contributed to the establishment of Czechoslovakia. Paška said that Czechs and Slovaks are not burdened by any historical traumas. SITA
