Bavarian Minister-President arrives on first official visit

19-12-2010

Bavarian leader Horst Seehofer arrived in Prague on Sunday for the first official, post-war visit to the Czech Republic by a Minister-President of the largest German free state. Mr Seehofer will be received by Czech Foreign Affairs Minister Karel Schwarzenberg on Sunday evening and will meet for official talks with the prime minister on Monday. The two-day discussion is to touch primarily on the development of relations between Bavaria and the Czech Republic; Prime Minister Nečas has said he has no intention of discussing issues of post-war German resettlement, which has been a thorn in the side of relations ever since WWII.
