Polish and Czech interests becoming more convergent - Polish PM

Interests of Poland and the Czech Republic are becoming more convergent, the Polish-Czech trade exchange has reached over EUR 20 bln and the whole Visegrad Group is Germany's largest trading partner, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said in Prague on Thursday.

Poland's prime minister arrived in Prague on Thursday morning to co-chair, together with his Czech counterpart Andrej Babis, Polish-Czech inter-governmental consultations. The talks are to focus on Brexit, the next EU budget, migration and bilateral ties.

The head of the Polish government noted that, recently, he has met with Babis very often. "This is an expression of our deepening Polish-Czech relations (...) proving that our interests are increasingly convergent, when it comes to the EU and our bilateral relations," Morawiecki assessed.
