“By bestowing the award, the Prince of Monaco showed appreciation for the dynamic development of relations between the two countries, which resulted in his first official visit as head of state to Slovakia [in May] and in the first ever Slovak-Monacan economic forum in Bratislava,” the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry said, as quoted by TASR.
