Czech President Václav Klaus and his wife Lívia began a three-day official visit to Slovakia on Monday, June 27, the Slovak President Office’s press department told the TASR newswire.
The last time that Klaus and Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič officially met was in June 2009 in Prague. In their meetings in Bratislava the two presidents will attempt to identify new areas of potential cooperation between Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
Traditionally, the Czech Republic has been one of Slovakia's most significant economic partners in several areas as well as in trade, which reached €12 billion in 2010, a figure second only to trade with Germany.
The Czech President will also meet Parliamentary Speaker Richard Sulík and Prime Minister Iveta Radičová.
