Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavský (Pirates) met privately with Joe Biden during the UN GA in September

As the Czech Republic currently holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union, we’ve gotten used to Czech Pirate politicians, who are part of the current Czech government, being more visible on the international stage. None more than the Foreign Minister Jan Lipavský though. In September he attended the United Nations General Assembly in New York on behalf of his country; and his presence was widely felt.

Lipavský spoke both at the session of the GA as well as during the session of the Security Council, a not-so-common honour. He loudly called for crimes committed by the Russian Federation in Ukraine to be investigated and international criminal court for these crimes to be formed. Now, well after the UN GA has ended, some details about a private meeting between Jan Lipavský and the US President Joe Biden are being released. As far as we can tell, the meeting took place on September 22nd and the minister used the NYC subway to get to it.

There’s no information as of yet concerning the topics discussed but we can confidently expect the Russian war to be the main one. If and when more information about the meeting gets released, we’ll be sure to let you know.
