The Slovak Embassy in the USA has decided to unveil a bust of Slovak statesman Milan Rastislav Štefánik.
“We want to draw attention to this great Slovak, politician and diplomat, who played an important role in our history,” said Ivan Korčok, Slovak Ambassador to the USA, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
Štefánik, a Slovak pilot and military man who grew into a prominent diplomat in the teens of the 20th century, when Czechoslovakia was established, worked mostly in European countries such as France, Italy, and Russia. Yet, he took part in important talks in the USA.
