MF DNES | Pellegrini's first foreign trip will take him to the Czech Republic

The newly elected Slovak President Peter Pellegrini will follow a long-standing tradition and his first foreign trip will be to the Czech Republic. This is despite the cooling of diplomatic relations between the countries. According to Kristína Chlebáková, project manager of EUROPEUM Institute, the relations are still highly superior and the new Slovak president will not want to disturb them. She commented on the future of Czech-Slovak diplomatic relations for the daily MF DNES.

I don't expect a highly friendly relationship with President Pavel. He and President Čaputová share a certain personal affection for the same values, similar views, and this is partly visible in their collaborators during the campaigns. Some of the people who worked for the Slovak president before her election then moved to the Czech president's campaign team.
