Netanyahu joins meeting of Visegrad 4

Netanyahu joins meeting of Visegrad 4

(19 Jul 2017) Israel's prime minister is looking for closer cooperation with the European Union in fighting militant groups and Central European countries like Hungary and Poland appear ready to help those efforts. Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that Israel was ready to work with European countries in the battle against militants, singling out "the ride of militant Islam". Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban hosted a meeting between Netanyahu and the prime ministers of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the other regional countries in the so-called Visegrad Group. Orban said at a press briefing that EU needed to base its relationship with Israel on "rationality" instead of criticism of Israel. The EU doesn't recognise Israeli sovereignty over territories it captured in the 1967 Mideast war, including the West Bank and east Jerusalem, where the Palestinians hope to establish a state. It has been a vocal critic of Israel's settlement construction and has adopted measures mandating the labelling of goods produced in West Bank settlements. Orban also said the EU should value Israel's efforts for stability in the region, as they also help protect the EU from "the migrant invasion." Earlier that day, Netanyahu was caught Wednesday by a live microphone railing against the European Union's "crazy" insistence on resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a precondition for closer ties with the 28-state bloc, and trumpeting Israel as essential to its prosperity and survival.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Tony Blair, British Prime Minister "We will not give up any part of the rebate or make any change to it in respect of any money going to the original 15 European countries, including France and Germany and Italy and Spain and all the rest of it. However, what we are prepared to do is to be in a position where we pay our fair share of the economic development money that these new Europeans need, otherwise we end up in the situation where we pay only a third of our costs towards that and they (the new European members) then have to take all of the drop themselves." 15.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Jiri Paroubek, Czech Prime Minister "Yes, I think that we have practically the same position... that for us it is suitable, at this moment, for future negotiations with the proposal of the Luxembourg presidency." 22. Delegations leave STORYLINE: British Prime Minister Tony Blair's hopes of reducing the amount of EU aid to Eastern European nations met with firm resistance on Friday, prompting a blunt warning from him that time is running out for the bloc to reach a deal on a 2007-2013 budget. "For those who are saying let's have no agreement in December... the consequence of that is that you could end up in two years time with only a third of the money that you need actually coming to countries like this," Blair told reporters after meeting with the leaders of Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. "What we are prepared to do is to be in a position where we pay our fair share of the economic development money that these new Europeans need, otherwise we end up in the situation where we pay only a third of our costs towards that and they (the new European members) then have to take all of the drop themselves," said Blair. Britain is believed to be pushing for a cut in EU aid to the bloc's 10 new members in the 2007-2013 period as a way of reducing the contributions made by the EU's leading countries. But Britain is also under intense pressure to break the deadlock by agreeing to a reduction in its budget rebate, which angers many partners - and France, in particular. Britain is said to be mulling a compromise ahead of a key December 15-16 EU summit in Brussels. Blair said Britain would make its 2007-2013 budget proposal early next week. But his chances of reaching an agreement on cutting aid looked slimmer than ever on Friday.

Poland’s interior minister defends anti-migration stance during Visegrad meeting

Poland’s interior minister defends anti-migration stance during Visegrad meeting

(26 Jun 2018) : Poland's interior minister said on Tuesday that his country and three others from Eastern Europe were right in their stance of opposing mass migration into Europe. Interior Minister Joachim Brudzinski said that "we have to declare unequivocally that in this debate, the Visegrad Group was right", referring also to Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Speaking after a meeting in Budapest, Brudzinski said that the four countries were united "against the uncontrolled influx of migrants". Hungarian Interior Minister Sandor Pinter, who hosted the meeting, said the Visegrad Group was helping Balkan countries like Serbia, Macedonia, Albania and Bosnia-Herzegovina to oppose migration and tackle human trafficking. Earlier this week, the leaders of Germany, France and about a dozen other European Union nations converged on Brussels for an afternoon of informal talks on differences over migration ahead of a full EU summit. The Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia refused to attend and reject taking in migrants in general.

Orban meets acting Czech PM on sidelines of Visegrad Group summit

Orban meets acting Czech PM on sidelines of Visegrad Group summit

(26 Jan 2018) The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban met the acting Czech Prime Minister on Friday in Budapest as part of a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the V4 (Visegrad Group) summit. Andrej Babis, the interim Czech PM, said Hungary had set a "historic example" in its handling of immigration. The Hungarian Prime Minister's immigration policies have included the construction of fences on Hungary's southern borders in late 2015 to stop or divert the flow of migrants coming north through the Balkans. Babis resigned on Wednesday after his government lost a vote of confidence in parliament, but was asked by President Milos Zeman to continue in his post until a new government is formed. The Prime Ministers of the V4 countries - Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia - reiterated their opposition to migration at the summit.

Visegrad PMs back Egypt as el-Sissi visits Budapest

(4 Jul 2017) The prime ministers of Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, and Slovakia - also known as the Visegrad Four countries - on Tuesday vowed to support Egypt in its battle against terrorism and to tackle Europe's migration crisis. In a joint press conference in Budapest, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi said "actions against the extremist groups and extremist ideologies are important as is the confinement of the countries which support and sponsor terrorism." Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said the Western world bears responsibility for the crisis in Libya because it "intervened in the life of that country without a viable organization plan." Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico underlined the need for a "rational approach to migration" while his Polish counterpart Beata Szydlo stressed the importance of having a "strong and unified voice in Europe" regarding ways to tackle the refugee crisis.
