29-01-2018

Outgoing Czech prime minister and ANO leader Andrej Babiš is due to take part in a series of meetings with top European Union officials on Monday afternoon and into the evening.

One of the meetings will be with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker. The talks should focus on the future shape of the EU, including the make-up of various funds and the overall budget, as well as the thorny issue of migration.

The Czech Republic and other Central European countries have taken a stand against quotas aimed at distributing immigrants who mostly arrived in Italy and Greece.
