The Czech Prime Minister Petr Nečas and Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg have sought to repair a rift between them. The rift occurred ahead of the recent two day summit of EU heads of government in Brussels when the foreign minister complained that the prime minister had not told him what policy positions over the EU had been taken in a meeting with President Václav Klaus. The prime minister said he was under no obligation to tell him everything. A joint statement released by the government spokesman to the Czech News Agency said the prime minister and foreign minister had lined up their EU positions in pre-summit meetings and shared the same views.
