Visegrad? Slavkov?

The problems in the relations within the EU are caused by intensified language and an absence of empathy", says Petr Kratochvíl in an interview for the daily Gazeta Wyborcza. He describes and explains a possible Czech reaction to the efforts of Beata Szydło’s government to steer the wheel away from the cooperation with Germany and towards the V4. He also comments on the Czech stance on Slovakia pressing the charges regarding the refugee quotas and on the impact of the Slavkov Declaration. Furthermore, he does not consider the agreement of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Austria to be competition for Visegrad. You can find out more about his views in the attached article.
