Sobotka suggests joint Czech-Austrian cabinet sessions on Vienna visit

Mr. Sobotka made the comment in Vienna on Tuesday after talks with the Austrian president Heinz Fischer. The two men discussed deepening cooperation between the Visegrad Four and Austria and the crisis in Ukraine. The Czech leader said his country could take inspiration from Austria’s public transport and active approach to combating unemployment.
