The chairman of the lower house of parliament, Radek Vondráček (ANO), announced on Wednesday he will pay a 10-day official visit to United States during which he plans to stress the importance of transatlantic ties and commemorate the centenary of the founding of Czechoslovakia.
Mr Vondráček, who will be in the US from July 16 to July 25, said he had been invited to visit the US House of Representatives by his American counterpart, Paul Ryan (Republican).
In March, Mr Ryan had visited the Czech Republic while on vacation, but nonetheless during his semi-official visit addressed the parliament, where he stressed the importance of bilateral ties and solidarity among NATO members.
