“V4 connects” – Visegrád Group foreign ministers meet in Budapest

Ministers participating in the Budapest meeting of the Visegrad Group praised the Hungarian presidency’s programme, designed under the motto “V4 connects”, and urged a cooperation which could be felt in the everyday life of citizens. Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajčak called the Hungarian programme “ambitious” and voiced his country’s full support. He advocated pragmatism and proposed that closer railway, energy, and digital links should be created to improve people’s lives. Those projects could greatly contribute to resolving problems at EU level, he said.

Witold Waszczykowski, Poland’s foreign minister, highlighted the areas of digitalisation and innovative society, and stressed the importance of north-south links and cooperation. Jakub Dürr, deputy foreign minister of the Czech Republic, said that the V4 cooperation should be present in everyday life; both citizens and businesses (of the four countries) need to be connected. Hungary took over the year-long V4 rotating presidency from Poland on July 1.

  • Wonderful – all these four leaders discussed how to spend EU-money, instead of inventing new ways on how to create funds to make themselves more independent, now when they risk being put on a slower track in the Great EU Train.
    (Western) EU has spent enormous sums on infrastructure projects in these four countries, but none of them wants to help out when the rest of the EU has a problem.
