Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič has sent a letter of condolences to Norway's King Harald V expressing his deep sorrow at the attacks carried out in the country on July 22.

"Please pass on my condolences and deep sympathy in the name of the Slovak people to the victims' families and near ones, the citizens of the Kingdom of Norway and the people of the capital Oslo whose lives were painfully affected by this incident," Gašparovič wrote. "We wish a quick recovery to all the injured."

Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda has responded to the Norwegian tragedy as well: he sent a letter of condolences to his Norwegian counterpart Jonas Gahr Store.

"Allow me emphatically condemn these inexcusable violent acts and convey my hope that the perpetrators will be brought to justice," Dzurinda wrote in his letter as quoted by TASR. "Please pass on my condolences to the families of the victims and everyone affected by these violent acts."

The ministry told TASR on Friday that it has no information that any Slovak citizens were affected.
