"I wish that Slovakia liked Europe more", European Commission (EC) President Jean-Claude Juncker said in a speech on Tuesday, on the occasion of a visit paid by Slovak Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini (Smer-SD) to the European Parliament. According to him, it was the Central Europeans who "dreamed" of a peaceful Europe, and that's why it's the task of the European Union to work on it. Juncker views Slovakia's current presidency of the Visegrad Four (V4) countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) as an opportunity to bring Europeans in East and West together. "Use your V4 presidency to help solve this," he said, appealing to the Slovak premier.
