28-01-2014

The Višegrad Group states should coordinate their foreign policy and push for an end to the violence in Ukraine, incoming prime minister Bohuslav Sobotka told journalists in Prague. Mr. Sobotka said the crisis in Ukraine would send repercussions across central Europe and it was important to act without delay in pushing for a democratic solution to the conflict. The best and most democratic solution would obviously be early elections, Mr. Sobotka said, adding that he had received information that a summit of the Visegrad Group – Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic – was being organized. Mr. Sobotka also announced that his first foreign trip in office would lead to neigbouring Slovakia.
