President Andrej Kiska and Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajčák had an informal lunch with former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright in New York on Monday. Later in the day, Andrej Kiska held a speech at the 71st UN General Assembly. "The migration crisis is the biggest problem since World War II. Millions of people are being forced to flee their countries. We should not talk about them as numbers, but as people," said Kiska. He also emphasized that it is a moral obligation of each successful country to seek ways of how to help in this situation. Miroslav Lajčák also commented on the situation. "In order to manage migration, we need to intensify international cooperation," he said.
