Sobotka and Tusk agreed on their countries´ stands on the situation in Ukraine and said they consider the violation of Ukraine´s sovereignty and territorial integrity unacceptable.

They will communicate their joint stance at the EU´s extraordinary summit on Thursday.

Tusk appreciated the Visegrad Four countries (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) trying to speak with one voice on the Ukrainian developments.

Sobotka and Tusk also spoke about interconnecting their neighbouring countries´ transport infrastructure, cooperation in energy and in improving the air in the Czech Moravia-Silesia Region that spreads along Poland´s southern border.

Sobotka discussed similar themes with Polish Senate chairman Bogdan Borusewicz.

Sobotka opened his first visit to Poland in his capacity as prime minister with a brief commemoration of Pole Ryszard Siwiec, who self-immolated himself in protest against the Soviet-led occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1968.
