Europe's anti-immigration party leaders will meet up in the Czech capital in search of a new model of cooperation soon.
The parties taking part in the summit together form the political group Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF) in the European Parliament.
They are united in their skepticism towards European integration and opposition to migration.
The meeting will take place in mid-December, the president of the movement Freedom and Direct Democracy (SPD) Tomio Okamura announced.
The parties invited will include the French National Front of Marine Le Pen, and the PVV of Geert Wilders, the Dutch opponent of Islam, Czech media announced.
“A new model of European cooperation will be discussed — the closest possible cooperation of sovereign countries, without being dictated to by Brussels, on the basis of mutual benefit,” Okamura said on the website Aktualne.cz.
In addition to Le Pen and Wilders, the president of the Italian Northern League, Matteo Salvini, and representatives of the Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) will also be present in Prague.
According to Okamura, the participation of the chief of the Austrian Freedom Party, Heinz-Christian Strache, remains uncertain due to ongoing negotiations regarding the formation of a government. Representatives from the fraction ENF from Romania, Poland, Belgium and Great Britain will also be at the conference.
Okamura’s SPD has enjoyed good relations with several anti-migration parties. Le Pen had supported such a movement prior to the parliamentary elections which took place in Czechia recently.
For the event, a hall with the capacity of a thousand seats has been booked, and has already been filled, said Okamura.
The conference will last for two days, and will start on Friday, December 15. The main event will take place on Saturday.
Discussions within the ENF group will take place before the afternoon meeting which will be open to invited members and supporters of parties brought together in ENF only.
