Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said on Friday, the Czech Republic will call for a meeting of European Union farm ministers to discuss ways to mitigate the impact of Russian ban on imports of European food products. Sobotka told a news conference, "Europe needs to agree on a common course of action." He added funds could possibly be found for compensation to affected producers. The request goes beyond the EU's plan to hold an emergency meeting of agricultural experts next Thursday.
