Czech Senators in Vienna to improve Czech-Austrian relations

A delegation of the Czech Senate's foreign affairs committee is currently on an official visit to Vienna. Under the leadership of Senator Michael Zantovsky, the delegation plans to meet with their Austrian counterparts as well as the chairman of the lower house of the Austrian parliament, Heinz Fischer, to discuss the future of Czech-Austrian relations. Several weeks ago, Austria's Benita Ferrero-Waldner announced that Austrian foreign policy would concentrate on developing a strategic partnership with its neighbours and would support its neighbouring candidates for attaining EU membership.
