EU defence ministers meet in Prague in March 2009

Autor: Oldřich Holeček

The meeting of the EU defence ministers in March 2009 will not be held in Olomouc but in Prague, the Czech Government decided on its meeting on 24 November 2008.

Czech Republic and European Union

The informal meeting of the defence ministers from the 27 EU member states is scheduled on 12 – 13 March 2009.

The reason for the change rests in the fact that Olomouc cannot offer suitable conditions for such an event – primarily it lacks proper accommodation capacities.

The Czech Republic will preside the EU from the beginning of 2009 replacing France. In the second half of the year it will hand it over to Sweden.
