"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.
