The Czech prime minister, Mirek Topolánek, is due to meet George Bush before he steps down as US president on January 20, the news website ihned.cz reported. Mr Topolánek cancelled a meeting with the American president planned for last week due to tensions within his party the Civic Democrats following poor election results.
The two leaders had been due to discuss the financial crisis and US plans to build a radar base in central Bohemia, as part of a global missile defence system. The rescheduled meeting is expected to take place at the end of this year or in January.
