The speaker of the lower house of Parliament Radek Vondráček paid his first working visit to Brussels on Tuesday, emphasizing the Czech Republic’s pro-EU orientation in talks with EC President Jean-Claude Juncker. Vondráček said it was essential to assure the European Commission of the governing ANO party’s commitment to the EU.
The visit came just a day after Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš held one-on-one talks behind closed doors with the EC president on migrant-related issues and the EC’s decision to sue the Czech Republic for its reluctance to accept asylum seekers. He stressed the importance of communicating the Czech stand and seeking allies among EU member states.
