British prime minister meets with Czech counterpart ahead of EU summit

British Prime Minister David Cameron arrived in Prague for an official visit on Thursday. He met with Czech Prime Minister Petr Nečas as well as President Václav Klaus. David Cameron and his Czech counterpart discussed financial and economical problems within the EU, as well as bilateral ties and new business opportunities. David Cameron told journalists after the meeting that aid to the heavily indebted Greece should be organized via the International Monetary Fund rather than from the EU. The meeting between the two prime ministers comes ahead of an EU summit scheduled for Thursday, which will focus on efforts to resolve the Greek debt crisis. David Cameron last visited Prague in 2009, when he was running for prime minister for Britain’s Conservative Party.
