Czech President Miloš Zeman is paying a two-day visit to Slovakia at the invitation of his Slovak counterpart, Ivan Gašparovič. It is Zeman's first foreign trip since he took up his position on March 8.

On Thursday, April 4, the presidents laid wreaths at the Memorial of the Liberation of Bratislava in Eugen Suchoň Square in central Bratislava. Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico then hosted a lunch for the Czech head of state, the SITA newswire wrote.

On Friday, Zeman will honour the memory of the statesman Milan Rastislav Štefánik at a memorial on the Danube promenade, and later have talks with Mayor of Bratislava Milan Ftáčnik and lunch with Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška at Bratislava Castle. The last visit of a Czech president to Bratislava took place relatively recently, on February 26, when the outgoing head of state Václav Klaus came to Bratislava.
