Speaking to Valerie Raymond of Canada, Gašparovič praised her country for cancelling the visa requirement for Slovaks and expressed his hope that Canada will do the same for the Czech Republic. At his meeting with El Salvador's Vanessa Tobar, Gašparovič said that her mission to Slovakia is of great importance as cooperation between the two countries is tiny and needs to be intensified in all areas, notably in farming, energy, water and the wood-processing industries.
