Defence ministers from six European countries met at Prague Castle on Monday to discuss greater defence cooperation and coordination of measures to deal with the inflow of refugees. The meeting is taking place within the framework of the Central European Defence Cooperation (CEDC) grouping which consists of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, and Croatia. The organisation was created in 2010 with the Czech Republic occupying the presidency this year. The refugee crisis has dominated the agenda over the past two years. The countries decided to carry out a joint exercise on protecting their borders later this year.
