The text is part of the book Matovic. The prime minister in sneakers, which is published by Denník N
On Friday, August 21, 2020, on the anniversary of the occupation of Czechoslovakia by Warsaw Pact troops in 1968, Prime Minister Igor Matovic met in Bratislava with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas. On that day, both took part in a remembrance of the victims of the occupation in front of the Comenius University building on Bratislava’s Šafárik Square, and Matovič received the German Minister at the Government Office. Maasa was accompanied by the new German ambassador to Bratislava, diplomat Barbara Wolf.
The conversation took place in places very informally, the prime minister talked to the German minister about how he traveled in his youth, worked part-time in Germany and helped with the separation of waste. Unusually, the German minister had to be joked by the prime minister about Foreign Minister Ivan Korčok, whom Maas was to meet after being received at the government office. Matovic lightly suggested to the German delegation that they “not go after Ivan”, explaining that in 1968, during the occupation, Czechoslovak citizens of Soviet soldiers nicknamed the Czechoslovak soldiers. “But what I have to say is Igor,” added the Slovak Prime Minister.
The participants of the meeting also remembered how the Prime Minister closed the meeting. According to the official program, it started before lunch, twenty minutes after eleven, and as the discussion drew to a close, Matovic turned to the German ambassador and told those present that it was time to end, because Mrs. Wolf was already looking hungry.
This is the typical humor of the leader OĽaNO. The Slovak public is already making his own jokes
