In his first visit to Brussels since being appointed Czech prime minister, Petr Nečas became embroiled in the ongoing row over France’s repatriations of Roma. Ahead of an EU summit in Brussels, Mr Nečas backed France’s position saying that each EU member state should be able to enforce its own laws, and the EU should not interfere in what is to a certain extent a French internal political question. However, the Czech prime minister later said he had purposefully avoided any evaluation of the steps recently taken by the French government.
During a three-day visit to Brussels, the Czech prime minister is also taking part in a European Union summit on Thursday, and will meet the secretary general of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
