Migrants, asylum seekers, freedom of the press, Rule of Law, respect

for the judiciary, Russian sanctions, Nato, Euro-scepticism,


Sounds like the US, doesn't it?  Could be.  However, these are the issues facing the Visegrad, or the V4 as they are commonly referred to, a group of Eastern European countries formed in 1991 and composed of Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Hungary.  Some of these issues have recently pitted Slovakia against the others and have transformed the V4 into a political factor to be reckoned with inside the EU.  Slovakia, as the current president of the V4, must often reconcile the divergent views of this group.

Please join us to hear the Ambassador discuss:
