The presidents are scheduled to meet in Brno in the Czech Republic, where they will present state awards to each other.

Klaus proposed that the Czech Government should award Gašparovič with the top Czech award, the Order of the White Lion. The Czech cabinet approved this move at a session last week. His Slovak counterpart decided to reciprocate by bestowing on Klaus the top award given to people from abroad - the Order of the Double White Cross. Klaus made his last foreign visit to Slovakia last week in the run-up to being replaced by Miloš Zeman on March 8.
