The visit of MP Ondrej Dostál from the Civil Conservative Party (OKS) to the reception commemorating the 62nd anniversary of the People’s Republic of China was covered by Chinese television station NTD, based in New York City, which used videos made by the Sme daily to report the story, the newspaper reported on October 1.

The uncensored TV channel broadcast a report about Dostál’s attempt to give the Chinese Ambassador to Slovakia, Gu Ziping, a book by the Chinese dissident Gao Zhisheng who has been jailed by the Chinese authorities and who has repeatedly criticised the Chinese communist regime for alleged human rights abuses.

“Dostál and the Chinese ambassador met in a friendly atmosphere but this harmonic scene did not last long,” said the NTD TV rporter, as quoted by Sme. “When Dostál presented his gift to Gu Ziping, everything changed.”
