In related news, Sweden is ready to assist the Czech Republic with the remainder of the country’s presidency of the European Union, the Swedish PM Fredrik Reinfeld told Swedish Radio on Friday. Mr Reinfled said his country, which will take over the presidency in July, is now facing higher responsibility because of the fall of the Czech government halfway through the presidency. The Swedish leader said that instead of waiting for the end of the Czech term at the EU’s helm, it was better to provide assistance to the new Czech government to successfully complete the presidency. In June, the EU will hold an important summit that will deal with the situation in Ireland and will also elect the new head of the European Commission.
