Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis will meet European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels on Thursday, news portal iROZHLAS.cz has said. Babis said two weeks ago that he wanted to discuss the audits concerning his suspected conflict of interest with Juncker. EC spokeswoman Mina Andreeva has not confirmed that the topic will be addressed. There is no agenda prepared beforehand, Andreeva said. The European Council is meeting in Brussels on Thursday and Friday. Babis told journalists on Thursday that he wanted to discuss with Juncker why EU enlargement by North Macedonia was not on the agenda of the session. "I will speak with him about Frontex and the EU budget," he added.
