PM to keep communication with Topolánek to minimum after comments

21-03-2010

Prime Minister Jan Fischer has reacted angrily to the comments made by the leader of the Civic Democrats. In a statement issued on Sunday, he said they were, “put diplomatically, insulting, stupid and devious”. Mr Fischer said he would in future keep contact with Mr Topolánek to the minimum required to maintain a working relationship; he said he was aware of Mr Topolánek’s apology, but said it was not up to him to either judge the latter or grant him absolution.
