Prague, Dec 28 (CTK) – The celebrations of 100 years since the foundation of Czechoslovakia as well as current foreign policy affairs along with regional cooperation will be on the agenda of the talks between Prime Minister Andrej Babis and Prime Minister Robert Fico next Friday.
Slovakia will be the destination of Babis’s first official foreign visit while in office.
Babis met Fico on the fringes of the December talks of the European Council.
After a meeting of the Visegrad Four (the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland), Fico said he was on very friendly terms with Babis.
“I highly esteem this. The relationships between the Czech and Slovak prime ministers were always excellent, irrespective of the camp in which they were,” Fico said.
Fico said in Brussels he had had excellent personal relations with previous Czech prime ministers Mirek Topolanek, Jiri Paroubek, Petr Necas, Jan Fischer and Bohuslav Sobotka.
He said he believed the cooperation with Babis would be without any problems, too.
The Foreign Ministry said Babis’s trip to Slovakia had a symbolical meaning because the Czech Republic was linked with it by special ties.
The conversation is to be dominated by the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakia.
“The latest foreign policy issues, including regional cooperation, will be mentioned as well,” Foreign Ministry report said.
Babis will visit Bulgaria on January 22 because Bulgaria will be holding the EU presidency as of the New Year.
