Poland, Czech leaders want more regional unity



WARSAW, Poland — The presidents of Poland and the Czech Republic have called for closer cooperation among central European nations to defend their decision-making powers against pressure from European Union leaders, particularly over migration policies.


[Czech President Milos] Zeman said Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary — members of the so-called Visegrad Group — are under pressure to accept the views of the EU governing body, and should strengthen their unity to defend their own interests.

“That doesn’t mean a negation of the European Union,” Zeman told reporters. He said the four countries should “build within the EU framework an indivisible unity that will be able to push through (their) joint interests.”
