Statement of the MFA on the Blockade of the Border Checkpoint Dolní Dvořiště-Wullowitz

 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic expresses its disappointment over the fact that the Austrian side did not take measures in order to ensure a continuous traffic on the border checkpoint Dolní Dvořiště-Wullowitz, according to its engagements in the Agreement between the Government of the Czech Republic and the Austrian Federal Government on Border Checkpoints on Common State Borders.(14/2/2007)

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic expresses its disappointment over the fact that the Austrian side did not take measures in order to ensure a continuous traffic on the border checkpoint Dolní Dvořiště-Wullowitz, according to its engagements in the Agreement between the Government of the Czech Republic and the Austrian Federal Government on Border Checkpoints on Common State Borders.


The prevention of free passage of the border checkpoint caused concrete difficulties to Czech citizens in free crossing of the border. It did not benefit to the further development of the security dialogue between both countries. It is crucial for this dialogue to take place in an atmosphere of mutual confidence. The MFA considers the repeated blockade of the border to be a non-constructive step, which is not in conformity with the achieved level of relations between Austria and the Czech Republic.
