The Visegrad four group of countries, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, have called for a less centralised EU in response to Brexit.
The initiative of the V4 comes after France and Germany drew up secret plans to create a new superstate and European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker said he would ban all currencies apart from the euro.
The four Prime Ministers of the Visegrad countries called in a joint statement for power to be given back to national states.
“The genuine concerns of our citizens need to be better reflected. National parliaments have to be heard. The institutions of the European Union need to stick to their missions and mandates. Trust also needs to be fostered among member states, starting with overcoming the artificial and unnecessary dividing lines we have seen emerging in past few months.”
