(This article expired 08.08.2014.)

On 7 August 2013, Ambassador Vladimír Galuška met the Head of the Wassenaar Arrangement Secretariat, Ambassador Philip Griffiths.

Ambassador Griffiths acknowledged active and constructive approach of the Czech Republic and its contribution to the purposes of the Wassenaar Arrangement, namely during its chairpersonship of the Plenary in 2011.

Ambassador Galuška appreciated the growing role of the Wassenaar Arrangement and expressed the view that the importance of its activities will be further enhanced by the existence of the Arms Trade Treaty adopted by the General Assembly on 2 April 2013.  As the Czech Republic recently assumed the Chair of the Nuclear Suppliers Group, he also promised to foster coordination between these two multilateral export control regimes.
