Fiala: Czechs have exhausted supply of weapons for Ukraine

Speaking after a meeting in Brussels with the head of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, the Czech prime minister, Petr Fiala, said that the Czech Republic had essentially exhausted the supply of weapons that it could donate to Ukraine.

In Brussels Mr. Fiala is also due to take part in a summit focused on Ukraine’s bid to become a member of the European Union. He told reporters that he expected EU leaders to back Kyiv’s efforts to join the EU as an expression of solidarity with Ukraine.

Mr. Fiala also said that it was important that EU leaders not only approve the candidate status of Ukraine and Moldova – they should also make progress in negotiations with the Western Balkans, he said.
