Earlier that week, Chlon also received the Medal of the Slovak President from Andrej Kiska, the TASR newswire wrote.

Lajčák appreciated the intensive, albeit short (two and a half year}, ambassador’s mission – cut short by his appointment to a new position of the Polish government’s proxy for the 2016 NATO summit in Warsaw. The Slovak minister highlighted Chlon’s merits in cross-border assistance and economic cooperation.
