The Czech Republic Wants to Join the EU Fiscal Pact

Foreign Minister Lubomír Zaorálek acknowledges his country’s readiness for EU integration

Berlin | Europe, European Union

The top candidates in this May's European elections should be doing more than just running on behalf of their own parties, said Foreign Minister Zaorálek during his talk at the DGAP. They must initiate a far-reaching discussion about the future of the European Union. Zaorálek, who took up his post this January, stressed that the Czech administration is in favor of encouraging mutual trust among all European actors.

A Building with History

The Rauchstraße building was constructed in 1938/1939 by Werner March, the architect of Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, and was originally the Embassy of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Ivo Andric, who would later win the Nobel Prize for Literature, lived in the building, which is now a registered historic landmark.
