Bek to attend Sudeten German Congress in Regensburg

Education Minister Mikuláš Bek will represent Czechia at the Sudeten German Congress in Regensburg, Bavaria, at the end of May, the Czech News Agency announced on Wednesday. Prime Minister Petr Fiala said that a Czech government representative would attend the convention when he met Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder last week, but did not name the person.

Relations between Sudeten Germans and the Czech government have improved significantly in recent years. Last year, the Czech national anthem was played for the first time at the convention, which Söder described as a symbol of the now friendly relations between Czechs and Germans.
