Czech Republic - Meeting between Jean-Marc Ayrault and his counterpart Lubomír Zaorálek (Paris, June 1, 2016)

On June 1, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development Jean-Marc Ayrault will welcome Lubomír Zaorálek, his Czech counterpart, for a working lunch.

The ministers will review major issues of European and international interest, as well as the expansion of our bilateral relationship, particularly in the economic arena.

This meeting will underscore the excellent relationship between France and the Czech Republic, which have a strategic partnership, along with the constructive role played by the Czech presidency of the Visegrád Group (Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, and Slovakia) from July 2015 to July 2016, at a time when the EU had to face many challenges.
