Kover: Focus on shared interests key to V4’s longevity

The key to the longevity of the Visegrad Group has been its members' ability to focus on issues that are of a shared interest and on which there is a chance for agreement, Speaker of Parliament Laszlo Kover said at the All-Hungarian University Students' Camp in Satoraljaujhely, in north-eastern Hungary, on Monday.

The cooperation between Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia has been most useful in giving the four countries the needed political weight within the European Union thanks to central Europe’s economic competitiveness, Kover said in response to a question after his lecture.

This, he added, also required the economic and infrastructural development of a north-south European axis in addition to the existing west-east economic links.

The five-day All-Hungarian University Students’ Camp is being attended by more than 300 young Hungarians from 18 countries, its organiser, the Rakoczi Association, said. It offers lectures, trips and sports and cultural programmes, they said.
