Czech PM to meet Hollande, Valls in France on March 23-24

3 March 2016

Prague, March 2 (CTK) - Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka will have talks with his counterpart Manuel Valls and President Francois Hollande during his visit to France on March 23-24, the government office told CTK on Wednesday.

The office said the talks will cover the latest European affairs and "the implementation of the action plan of strategic partnership."

Sobotka is likely to discuss migration and terrorism with the French political leaders.

During his trip to France, Sobotka will take part in a meeting of French investors and entrepreneurs.

He will also unveil a plaque commemorating the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Czechoslovak National Council in Paris.

The Czechoslovak National Council was a body representing the Czechoslovak foreign resistance movement and the Western countries gradually started recognising it as the official representative of the future Czechoslovak state, which was founded in 1918.

Since his appointment as prime minister in January 2014, Sobotka visited France several times. Last autumn, he participated in the Paris summit on climate change.
