The Visegrad Four countries and three Baltic states have agreed to form a common energy policy, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote.

The prime ministers of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia agreed on a common meeting separate from regular European Union meetings, in order to discuss a common energy strategy and several projects of infrastructure. All countries import energy sources, mainly from Russia.

"September 2008 is the probable date of a summit of these countries," Polish Premier Donald Tusk said, refusing to elaborate more in detail about the planned cooperation.

The European Commission has been urging EU member states for some time to agree on a common energy policy, but diplomats expect that due to various national interests, the EU will not see a common policy within the next few years.
