In his turn Ivan Gasparovic noted that the problem of flooding of some areas annually occurs in Slovakia and agreed with the President of Ukraine that joining efforts to prevent human casualties and material damage is needed.

The President of Slovakia expressed his willingness to cooperate with the Ukrainian side in this issue.
