Babiš: Poche will never be foreign minister

Radio Prague |

The Social Democrats' nominee for foreign minister, Miroslav Poche, has been a very negative force at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, says PM Andrej Babiš. Mr. Babiš said on a TV discussion show on Sunday that Mr. Poche, who is currently a political secretary at the ministry, would never head the government department. Mr. Poche described the PM's words on Sunday as an attack. He said if Mr. Babiš was cooperating with the likes of Hungary's Viktor Orban he would be hard pressed to find a similarly minded foreign minister within the Social Democrats.
