Prime Minister to receive Romany officials

Czech Prime Minister Petr Nečas is set to meet with officials from the national association of Romanies living in the Czech Republic on Monday. The prime minister is set to discuss ways to help ease tensions between mainstream Czechs and Romanies as well as what can be done to help address problems that plague the Romany community. This is the first time that a Czech prime minister meets with a Romany interest group in his offices; the group had previously made it clear that more initiative on the part of the government regarding the worsening racial tensions in the country would be appreciated.
