Fiala visits Bratislava on first international trip as PM

The Czech prime minister, Petr Fiala, visited Slovakia on Tuesday on his first foreign trip since being appointed last month. Mr. Fiala travelled by car from Brno to Bratislava and held talks with his Slovak counterpart, Eduard Heger, after a ceremony at which the anthems of both states were played.

The two leaders discussed the Czech presidency of the EU and Slovakia’s leadership of the Visegrad Four, roles the countries will take on in the second half of this year. They also said that nuclear power needed to be part of the energy mix of their states.
