President: Discussion with Merkel was "calm and pragmatic"

29-08-2016

In an interview for commercial radio station Frekvence 1 on Sunday, President Miloš Zeman described as "calm and pragmatic" a discussion on the migration issue he had last week with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Last Thursday, Mrs Merkel arrived on an official visit to Prague, meeting with her counterpart Bohuslav Sobotka as well as the president. The visit was billed as an opportunity for the two sides to discuss bi-lateral projects as well as the future of the EU. Merkel admitted that the one area where she and Czech representatives failed to see eye to eye was on migrant redistribution.
