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.
