Slovakia’s Visegrad Four (V4: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia) presidency expires this month. In hindsight, Foreign and European Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák is convinced it was an extremely dynamic term, during which, some 140 events associating both politicians and experts were organised. The V4 followed up on the inter-regional dialogue with countries of the Western Balkans, Eastern Partnership, Scandinavian and Baltic states. Following the example set by V4, Balkan partner countries have committed to strengthening regional cooperation and establishing the Western Balkans Fund, based in Tirana.
