Pavel, who took office last week, said relations between the two neighbors had “probably never been at such a good level”.
The Ukraine war, he said, “made everyone realize very seriously where the real value is and what the value is in working with our allies, our friends.”

Pawel and Polish President Andrzej Duda said they discussed security in the region in preparation for a NATO summit in Vilnius, Lithuania, in July.
They also discussed developing a gas pipeline system to help wean themselves off their dependence on Russian energy supplies and boost rail and road infrastructure.
They vowed to continue to support Ukraine in the event of a full-scale Russian invasion and to support the reconstruction of the country.
Duda said Poland would soon deliver about a dozen MiG-29 jet fighters to Ukraine, the first four of which would be delivered in the next few days.
Pavel, a 61-year-old retired army general and former chairman of NATO’s military council, fully approves of the Czech Republic’s military and humanitarian support for Ukraine’s fight against Russian aggression. (Associated Press)
