Fiala met with House Speaker Mike Johnson and several Democratic and Republican members of the House. “I met practically all the important people and all the negotiations were very friendly and open,” the Prime Minister said.

The aid package was backed by the Senate in February, but the Republican leadership of the House of Representatives has so far refused to bring it up for a vote. In addition to funds for other allies, the plan includes more than $60 billion (about 1.4 trillion crowns) for Ukraine. “After all these negotiations, I can say that I am somewhat optimistic about the approval of the aid package for Ukraine,” Fiala said.

Johnson said the House of Representatives should take up the aid packages as separate bills this week. According to Fiala, it's not the process that matters, but the outcome. “Different strategies are being considered to achieve overall recognition, segmentation may be one way,” he pointed out.

According to Fiala, the U.S. delegation praised the Czech Republic and its role in helping Ukraine, including efforts to focus on finding artillery ammunition. “It's gratifying,” he added. He saw no differences on key issues between Republicans and Democrats, although he understood that they were in different positions domestically.

In Congress, Fiala also spoke about nuclear power and the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG). “We are very concerned that the US does not limit its LNG supplies to Europe in the long term. For the Czech Republic, it is important that we remain energy independent from Russia and have enough cheap gas in Europe,” he explained. Economic cooperation was also discussed in the meetings.
