Visiting Bavarian Prime Minister Horst Seehofer on Thursday met for talks with the Czech head of government Bohuslav Sobotka. The two officials signed an agreement on strengthening cooperation in business, science and education. Fighting cross-border crime was also a topic high on the agenda since the Bavarian authorities are having an increasing problem with home-made drugs smuggled across the border from the Czech Republic. Bavaria will open an official representation in Prague later this year which should further improve bilateral relations, long hampered by the controversial Beneš decrees.
