House Speaker: V4 can no longer be ignored

László Kövér said the Visegrad countries have drawn the conclusion from the past 30 years that joint actions and close cooperation may provide them new opportunities in Europe.

Hungary’s parliamentary speaker, László Kövér has said the position of the Visegrad Group can no longer be ignored as their excellent cooperation focuses on seeking consensus rather than exacerbating disputes.

During a meeting with his Polish, Czech and Slovak counterparts at Prague’s Wallenstein Palace, the four speakers discussed the experience gained since transition to democracy three decades ago and the challenges faced by the Visegrad countries.

“Thirty years ago we cherished the common goals of replacing dictatorship with democracy, servitude with freedom, subordination with self-determination, and poverty with welfare,” Kövér said.

The speaker concluded that Visegrad countries have drawn the conclusion from the past 30 years that joint actions and close cooperation may provide them new opportunities in Europe.
