The high-speed railway to connect Budapest, Bratislava, Ostrava and Warsaw will be one of the most ambitious projects the Visegrad Four countries have ever launched, Péter Szijjártó, Hungary’s minister of foreign affairs and trade, said after talks with Vazil Hudák, vice-president of the European Investment Bank (EIB), in Budapest. The feasibility study is already in the pipeline, with the four countries expecting the EIB to part-finance the project, the foreign ministry said in a statement.
