Deal over Czech plots at Hamburg port possible

The Czech Republic is prepared to exchange two sites it owns at Hamburg docks for a more advantageous property, Minister of Transport Dan Ťok announced after a visit to the German port city. Hamburg authorities have earmarked the two pieces of Czech land for use in their plans to stage the Olympic Games in 2024. The minister said an exchange might be to the advantage of the Czech Republic. One piece of land was allotted the country by the Treaty of Versailles and the terms for the allocation expires in a few years. The other piece of land was purchased in 1929.
