Asked whether the V4 group has agreed on a unified approach concerning the construction of NS2, Krzysztof Szczerski replied:
“Poland and Slovakia are the champions and leaders when it comes to opinions on NS2. The remaining members of the Visegrad Group have accepted our position on the matter and by not participating in NS2, they will be supporting our critical position.”
