NEW Czech Prime Minister Stanislav Gross said that Czech and Slovak representatives should look again at the stalled proposal on changes to the border regime between the Czech and Slovak republics.
"The problem is that there are many myths about this agreement, with some calling it 'a new Iron Curtain'. Anyone who is familiar with the document must know that no such thing would be possible on the border," said Gross, speaking to news wire TASR on August 27 during his visit to Slovakia.
Under the proposal, supported by the European Union, Slovaks and Czechs would be able to cross the border at designated crossings.
"We do not want to complicate the lives of people living there," the PM stressed, referring to the objections of those living in the border area.
Gross has been a consistent supporter of the border proposal.
