The presidents of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, the four countries that make up the Visegrad Group of States, met in the presidential residence in Polish south town Wisla on Tuesday to conclude Poland's 12-month presidency over the group.

 

The Visegrad Group today may prove beneficial for the whole Europe as it offers a respectable political and economic potential, Poland's President Bronislaw Komorowski said as he welcomed his Czech, Hungarian and Slovak counterparts - Milos Zeman, Janos Ader and Ivan Gasparovic.

 

Bronislaw Komorowski summed up the Polish presidency which ended on June 30. He stressed that one of the major achievements of the group during the year was the successful negotiation of the EU's next multi-year budget for 2014-2020.

 

"I believe that the funds negotiated with much effort and energy may play a significant part in further strengthening of the position of our countries through their economic growth," Komorowski said.

 

He stressed he was particularly satisfied with the signing of "a road map" for creating a single gas market within the group. Another success was an agreement on establishing a Visegrad battle group that would become operational by 2016, according to Komorowski.

 

The Polish president stressed the group's support for further EU expansion as he mentioned the example of some Balkan countries.

 

During the meeting, Janos Ader was to present the priorities of Hungary's presidency for the next 12 months. The presidents were also to debate issues related to energy, security, transport, infrastructure and civic dialogue.

 

They were also to discuss the Western Balkans, the prospects of the EU expansion and the EU's Eastern Partnership programme.

 

On Wednesday morning the four heads of state will be joined by Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovych to discuss Ukrainian issues, including a potential signing of an EU-Ukraine association agreement during an Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius this November. (PAP)
