On Wednesday, 27 April 2016, Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka met at the Straka Academy with Hungarian National Assembly Chairman Lászlo Kövér, who came to the Czech Republic to mark the occasion of the meeting of the chairpersons of the Visegrad countries’ houses of parliament. Prime Minister Sobotka spoke with the chairman of the Hungarian National Assembly about regional cooperation in Central Europe and about the Czech Republic’s current presidency of the Visegrad Group as well as about current European issues.

The subjects of the bilateral talks included in particular the development of economic cooperation and mutual cultural exchanges. The Czech Republic has very close relations with Hungary and, as Prime Minister Sobotka emphasised during the talks, even though the two countries do not share a border the Czech Republic has traditionally considered Hungary to be an honorary neighbour.

Besides meeting with Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka during the meeting of the chairpersons of the Visegrad countries’ houses of parliament, Hungarian National Assembly Chairman László Kövér also met separately with Czech Senate Chairman Milan Štěch and Czech Chamber of Deputies Chairman Jan Hamáček.
