A European Defence and Security Conference got underway in Prague on Friday. The event, being held at Prague’s Žofín complex, was opened by the Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. Among those due to speak are the EU’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, and the secretary general of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, as well as other top EU and NATO officials. In a joint article published in the Wall Street Journal earlier this week, Bohuslav Sobotka and Jean-Claude Juncker said Europe must take its defence into its own hands.
