The Czech Republic should stand up for Hungary in its dispute with the European Union

The Czech Republic should stand up for Hungary in its dispute with the European Union, not only because it is a close ally, but because the Czechs themselves could one day find themselves in a similar position, President Zeman said in an interview for commercial TV Barrandov on Thursday, Radio Praha reports.

The Czech head of state criticized the European Parliament’s decision to launch a procedure against Hungary over its alleged breach of core EU values. 

Mr. Zeman said Hungary was defending itself against pressures to conform and the other countries of the Visegrad group – the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia – could find themselves in a similar situation in the future.
