Višegrad group meeting cancelled due to Czech political crisis

A scheduled meeting of the Višegrad Group – a loose economic alliance of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland – has been cancelled due to the political crisis in this country, the Office of the Government reported on Thursday. The meeting was scheduled for this Saturday and although Prime Minister Jiří Rusnok was prepared to meet his obligations, the meeting was cancelled at Hungary’s suggestion. The meeting, at which the four countries were to debate bilateral ties and coordinate their stands on important EU matters, has been postponed indefinitely.
