"The discussions of the prime minister with representatives of the Czech Republic will focus on possibilities for strengthening mutual cooperation between the two countries in various areas, with an emphasis on economic issues, energy security and the further development of cooperation in all fields of electrical energy projects," the Government Office stated, as reported by the SITA newswire.

Current issues on the European agenda will also be discussed during the visit, like the treaty establishing the ESM, the treaty on stability, coordination and management of the economic and monetary union, and cooperation between the Czech Republic and Slovakia in the regional Visegrad Group (V4).

After an official ceremony at the Government Office in Prague at about noon, the Slovak prime minister will have a working lunch with his Czech counterpart Petr Nečas. After their joint press conference, Prime Minister Fico will move to Prague Castle, where Czech President Václav Klaus will receive him.
