Vít Dostál comments on the relations between Andrej Babiš and Miloš Zeman.
Vit Dostal, from the Association For International Affairs, said Zeman had backed Babis in last year’s election and Babis had backed him in return, but that the “transaction” had ended with Zeman’s victory on Saturday.
“He [Babis] is very transactional. He’s not Zeman’s ‘friend’ in any sense,” Dostal said.
Dostal said Babis did not want to get too close to Zeman or Okamura because he liked the kind of red carpet treatment that Juncker gave him in Brussels.
“He [Babis] enjoys going to venues like Davos and he wants to be respected in other EU capitals,” Dostal said.
