The Czech Republic has enough gas and oil reserves in the event gas or oil supplies from Ukraine are stopped or reduced, Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka confirmed Sunday after a meeting of the National Security Council. Members - including the finance, interior and foreign ministers - were meeting to discuss the escalating crisis in Ukraine. In terms of energy or defence, Ukraine's crisis has not affected the Czech Republic, members confirmed; the foreign minister also stated there had been no major jump in the number of asylum-seekers. The Czech Republic has condemned steps taken by Russia in Ukraine and appealed to Russia not to use military force. EU foreign ministers are meeting on Monday to discuss the Ukraine crisis and possible steps by the EU and Nato.
