Polish Senate Marshal : V4 cooperation amplifies CEE’s ‘voice’
As a result of the cooperation of the Visegrad Four countries and strengthening ties among their national parliaments “the voice of central and eastern Europe has become stronger in Europe,” the marshal of the Polish Senate told Hungarian public media on Sunday.
Stanislaw Karczewski assessed cooperation among the parliaments of the V4 grouping of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia as his country hands over the twelve-month V4 presidency to Hungary in July.
Speaking to MTI and Kossuth Radio, Karczewski said that Poland would pass on the presidency “into good hands”.
“We are aware of the commitment and interest House Speaker László Kövér has in supporting the Visegrad cooperation,” Karczewski said in an interview.
He called the cooperation between the Polish and Hungarian parliaments “exemplary”.
Karczewski said he viewed the Visegrad Four as an important forum of “good neighbourly cooperation” also allowing an exchange of views of the four countries’ governments.
He emphasised the importance of giving more weight to the four parliaments’ cooperation which had helped improve the V4 cooperation as a whole.
