Prime Ministers of the Visegrad Group (V4) took part in a summit in Budapest on 19 July, where they discussed the fight against terrorism, cooperation on migration and cyber security, and relations between the EU and Israel, with their Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu.

Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka specifically highlighted potential EU and Israeli cooperation in areas such as security, cyber security and the fight against terrorism. Netanyahu and the prime ministers of the V4 agreed to set up a joint counter-terrorism working group, pointing out that cooperation would be possible even in the field of technology development. In addition, Netanyahu criticised the EU's relations with Israel, particularly Israeli settlement policy, and asked the V4 states for support in Brussel. V4, on the other hand, expressed support for the peace process, particularly focusing on Donald Trump's positions. The Budapest V4 Summit continued to address the issue of migration as the V4 countries consider the situation in the Mediterranean as very serious. Czech PM Sobotka once again reiterated that the Czech Republic is ready to support the Libyan Coast Guard with the sum of €900,000 and help Italy with the return of illegal migrants.
