Solana to visit Prague in December

21-11-2008

The Secretary-General of the European Council Javier Solana will arrive in Prague to meet with President Václav Klaus as well as the country’s prime minister in early December. It will be Mr Solana’s first official visit as the EU’s High Representative for Common Foreign and Security Policy. Topics that are expected to be discussed in Mr Solana’s meeting with Mr Klaus include foreign policy issues as well as the Czech Republic’s upcoming six-month EU presidency. The talks are expected to be closely-watched not least because Mr Klaus is a well-known critic of further European integration, as well as the Lisbon treaty.
