ICE - Insight Central Europe


In this week's Insight Central Europe: Austria is blocking the movement of US troops through the country from Germany to Italy, and the country's defence minister says without a UN mandate for military action there can be no overflights or troop movements through Austria; tourism officials of the four Visegrad countries (Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia) have signed an agreement aimed at closer co-operation in the tourism industry; meanwhile, Austria is seeing a marked increase in tourists from Central and Eastern Europe; and why doesn't the best-known Czech author Milan Kundera allow his latest novels to be published in Czech?
