Report on the Foreign Policy of the Czech Republic 2005
13.11.2006 / 10:36
This is the seventh report on the Czech Republic's foreign policy prepared by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic. It contains summary information about Czech foreign policy for 2005 and will inform you about the achievements of Czech diplomacy.
Besides its traditional priorities, such as strengthening Euro-Atlantic ties and furthering friendly relations with neighbouring countries, the Czech Republic's foreign policy activities in 2005 concentrated on supporting democracy and the development of human rights in countries where authoritative regimes continue to suppress values that we now take for granted. The Czech Republic also continued to participate in the fight against international terrorism, which again reminded Europe of the reality of this threat.
The Czech Republic also actively promoted its foreign policy priorities within the European Union, where the country successfully completed its first year of membership.
The book also contains information regarding the economic and cultural dimension of Czech foreign policy; and space is devoted to the presentation of the Czech Republic abroad, where one of the most significant events of 2005 was the presentation of the country' s new, original logo.
I hope and trust that you will find the information about the Czech Republic's foreign policy contained in this publication interesting and useful reading.
