As for last year’s meeting between Kiska and Soros, they met in New York, in September 2017, during the UN General Assembly. They talked about how to help better integrate the Roma community in Slovakia, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The official release also states that Kiska was not alone at this meeting – as Fico suggested – but rather accompanied by several advisors, while Mr. Soros was with his son, Alex Soros, vice-chair of the Open Society Foundations, and OSF president Patrick Gaspard.
