President Zeman congratulates newly elected Slovak counterpart

President Miloš Zeman has sent a letter of congratulations to the newly elected Slovak President Andrej Kiska and extended an invitation for him to visit the Czech Republic. In the letter Mr. Zeman said he looked forward to future cooperation and hoped that he and Mr. Kiska could further deepen the two neighbouring states above-standard relations. The Czech Republic and Slovakia spent 73 years in a common state and the newly-elected Slovak head of state has already confirmed that, in line with tradition, his first trip abroad would be to the Czech Republic.
