BRUSSELS, 2 JULY - Timmermans is not an "acceptable" candidate for the Visegrad group, because "we have totally different visions on immigration and it is a problem for us": Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis said it when he entered the EU summit on nominations .
"We in the V4 group are very simple, we want someone who does not have a negative view of our region, so Timmermans is not acceptable," he explained.
On Vestager, "unfortunately some States are against and some colleagues say that Parliament would not support, but it would be an excellent candidate," he added.
