Czech PM starts two-day Bavaria visit


Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka and deputy prime minister Pavel Bělobrádek will start a two-day working visit to the state of Bavaria on Thursday. They will meet with the president of the region Horst Seehofer. One of the main targets of the trip is to firm up cooperation on research and development between the Czech Republic and Germany’s most affluent region. The question of improved rail links will also be raised. The Czech prime minister is also scheduled to visit the site where the Munich Agreement was signed in 1938 by France, Germany, Italy, and Britain. The move agreed the takeover of the border Sudetenland by Nazi Germany and sparked the break-up of Czechoslovakia.
