Deputy Speaker: Visegrad Group ‘alive in parliamentary cooperation’

Deputy Speaker of Parliament Csaba Hende attended a meeting of the parliamentary heads of the Visegrad countries and Ukraine in Prague on Thursday, and said the event had shown that "the Visegrad cooperation is alive in its parliamentary form".

The meeting of the heads of government of Czechia, Hnugary, Poland and Slovakia earlier in the week highlighted the common ground on issues such as the fight against illegal migration, a joint stance against EU tax harmonisation to preserve the region’s competitiveness, and the protection of nations’ sovereign right to determine their energy mix, Hende said. They are also working together to create regional energy independence and to protect the European markets from poor quality agricultural produce, he said.

After the meeting, Hende had bilateral talks with Ruslan Stefanchuk, the speaker of the Ukrainian parliament.
