The government commenced discussions on the Fiscal Compact

Vláda ve středu 19. února 2014 jednala o fiskálním paktu i situaci na Ukrajině.
On Wednesday, 19 February 2014, the government discussed the Fiscal Compact as well as the situation in Ukraine.
During today’s meeting the members of the government discussed the Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economic and Monetary Union, the goal being to eliminate the Czech exception from the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, and the escalating situation in Ukraine.

The government was addressing the Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economic and Monetary Union, then suspended discussions, and will resume them in a month. The Czech Republic could thus join the Fiscal Compact by the beginning of the second half of this year. The government’s proposal will also be discussed in Parliamentary committees and the tripartite.

Another point on the government’s agenda from the area of European politics was the aim to eliminate the Czech exception from the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. The government tasked Minister of Foreign Affairs Lubomír Zaorálek with implementing appropriate measures within the scope of the European Union that would lead to the exception from the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU to no longer be exercised.
