Although central Europe supported Slovakia’s Vice-President for the Energy Union, Maroš Šefčovič, to hold one of the top EU posts after the European Union elections, he was not chosen for any.
Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák believes the bad reputation of the Visegrad countries, four central European countries comprising the V4 group in the region, played its role when important EU posts were being decided
“It is no secret that the image of Visegrad Four within the EU is not good,” Lajčák explained to the TASR newswire. “It is our own fault.”
Nevertheless, the stance towards migration turned out to be right, and the time proved that the V4 views were rational, Lajčák added.
