Attending the Globsec Security Forum in Bratislava on Friday, Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš criticized the concept of a two-speed European Union.
The Czech prime minister said that the fact that different EU member states needed to go at their own pace in reaching the common goal should not be a divisive factor and should not be allowed to impede the functioning of the common market.
Babiš argued that an elite club would only undermine EU unity and that debates relating to the future of the European Union should be open to all members, without regard to their economic pace and degree of integration.
