29-07-2008

Czech President Václav Klaus has met with Declan Ganley, an Irish leader of the campaign against the Lisbon treaty. Mr Klaus and Mr Ganley agreed that the Irish rejection of the Lisbon treaty has the same weight as the refusal by any other state. Mr Ganley, the chairman of the Libertas movement, has also met with Czech MEP Jan Zahradil, who said that the Irish euro-sceptic group could be a partner of the Civic Democrats in the European Parliament.
