Czech PM reacts to Orbán’s speech

Czechia is a sovereign state, and its government is protecting the interests of the nation, Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala said on Saturday, responding to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's speech at the Balvanyos Summer University in Baile Tusnad, in central Romania.

Responding to Orbán’s remarks on “federalists’ attack on the Visegrad Group”, Fiala said: “Czechia is a sovereign state. We decide independently what we promote, support or want to change within the European Union.”

“Absurd stigmatisations will certainly not contribute to the necessary cooperation of central European countries. On the contrary, that requires mutual respect,” he said.
