MFA hosts Strategic Dialogue on the Occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Czech-German Declaration

Date: 30.01.2017 , Venue: Czernin Palace

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the signature of the Czech-German Declaration, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic hosts an evaluation of the Czech-German Strategic Dialogue under presence of Foreign Minister Lubomír Zaorálek and Federal Minister Christian Schmidt, followed by a press conference, on January 30th 2017.

The Czech-German Strategic Dialogue initiated in July 2015 represents the latest platform in developing bilateral relations aiming not only at a good neighborhood based mostly on cooperation between individual resort ministries, but also on building up a lasting partnership between a bigger and smaller neighbour in a united Europe.

A ceremonial act at the Charles University under the auspices of the Foreign Ministries of the Czech Republic and Federal Republic of Germany and the Charles University itself will be held. Mr. Ivan Krastev will deliver a speech as a guest speaker on the future potential of development of Czech-German relations in the region of Central Europe.
In the Liechtenstein Palace, a festive annual conference of the Czech-German Discussion Forum under the auspices of the Czech-German Future Fund and Forum 2000 focused on the evaluation of the Czech-German relations since 1997 will take place.
