Czech president begins state visit to Romania

Czech President Miloš Zeman begins a two-day visit to Romania on Tuesday at the invitation of his Romanian counterpart President Traian Băsescu. The Czech head of state is expected to meet with Romanian government officials and business leaders with economic interests high on the agenda of the talks. The two sides are also expected to discuss EU matters and security issues in the light of the Ukraine crisis. Bucharest recently announced it wanted to join the Eurozone by 2019. The Czech Republic has yet to set a time frame for euro-adoption.
