Sticking together we can achieve more; such is the fundamental message from the 25-year long cooperation of the Visegrad Group, Polish president Andrzej Duda said in Friday.

Duda spoke during a meeting in Łańcut in south-eastern Poland, which was attended by the Presidents of Slovakia, Andrej Kiska, the Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman, and Hungary, Janos Ader.
The four countries make up the Visegrad Group, which was founded 25 years ago in 1991.
According to Poland's President, integration with Euro-Atlantic structures was the main goal of the four leaders who set up the Visegrad Group.
“This goal has been achieved. Today our four countries are EU and NATO members. The experience acquired on the common road to the EU and NATO showed that acting together we can achieve more," Duda said.
Poland has been holding the rotating presidency of the Visegrad Group since 1 July.
At the beginning of the meeting the four presidents honoured the late Michal Kováč with a minute of silence. Kováč was the first Slovak president after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in early 1993, and died on 5 October. (rg)
