Message of congratulations of President Barroso to the President-elect of the Slovak Republic, Mr Andrej Kiska
Dear Mr President-elect,
On behalf of the European Commission and myself, I would like to congratulate you on your election as President of the Slovak Republic.
I am confident that under your presidency, the Slovak Republic will prosper within the European Union, and continue to be a positive force for European democratic development. The many challenges faced by Slovakia and by the EU today can best be tackled through cooperation among European partners.
I count on your active involvement in communicating the unique European project to your citizens and in reinforcing the European Union's role as a strong player on the global scene and in protecting its citizens.
I wish you every success in your responsibility as Head of State.
Please accept, dear Mr President-elect, the assurance of my highest consideration.
José Manuel Durão Barroso
