Czech president to visit Poland at end of next week

The Czech president, Miloš Zeman, is due to make a two-day visit to Poland at the end of next week, continuing a series of visits to neighbouring states. Mr. Zeman will have a meeting with his Polish counterpart, Bronislaw Komorowski, on a trip that comes hot on the heels of a visit to Warsaw by the Czech prime minister, Petr Nečas. The Czech head of state, who was elected in January, will take part in a meeting of 18 European presidents in Bratislava next month, while he is also expected to travel to Germany and to visit Czech troops in Afghanistan later this year.
