Prague hosting talks of V4, Luxembourg foreign ministers

21 September 2015

Prague/Warsaw, Sept 20 (CTK) - The foreign ministers of the Visegrad Four (V4) countries, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, as well as Luxembourg will meet in Prague on Monday to debate the refugee crisis, Czech Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Michaela Lagronova confirmed to CTK Sunday.

Luxembourg holds the presidency of the European Council in this half-year.

Polish Foreign Minster Grzegorz Schetyna informed the media about the Monday extraordinary talks on migration earlier Sunday.

He said it would be a working coordination meeting that would probably not result in a united stance or a joint declaration. However, the V4 countries should harmonise their stances ahaed of the extraordinary EU summit on migration to be held on Wednesday, he added.

A similar meeting, with the German foreign minister attending as well, took place in Prague on September 11. The diplomacy heads then failed to solve the discrepancies in their views of the redistribution of migrants.

Lagronova said the foreign ministers of other EU countries would also attend the Monday meeting.

The Foreign Ministry would release the names of the confirmed participants on Monday morning.
