Bavarian leader Horst Seehofer and Czech Prime Minister Petr Nečas have met for official talks in Prague, discussing a broadening of bilateral cooperation, largely in transport, energy and trade. It is the first official visit to the Czech Republic by a Bavarian Minister-President since World War II. The two leaders said on Monday they still viewed differently historic developments which have burdened Czech-Bavarian relations, namely the expulsion after World War II of more than 2.5 million ethnic Germans from Czechoslovakia. However, both stressed Czech-Bavarian relations needed to focus on the future. After their meeting, Mr Seehofer said his visit - which came at the invitation of the Czech prime minister - represented a new chapter in bilateral relations.
