Among the priorities of the Polish presidency are a strong V4 voice within the EU, including coordination of the European agenda and cooperation concerning key challenges; building synergy via enhanced dialogue – and boosted cooperation – at the regional level based on institutional and functional synergy, security and stability of the region; strengthening the identity and image of the V4 countries, and V4 cooperation in transport infrastructure, the Polish Embassy in Slovakia told the TASR newswire.

Moreover, V4 will be supporting – during the Polish presidency – implementation of the decision of the Warsaw NATO Summit.
