Statement on the reflection of extraordinary COVID-19 measures in the EU Member States

 

The Czech Republic believes that the core democratic principles and values that the European union is founded upon to be implicit baselines for all Member States, particularly in this stressful time.

The situation we find ourselves in is without precedent in modern European history. This makes it all the more important to ensure that our founding values are followed and that unity and cooperation between all nations of the EU continues to be at the forefront. Once we have successfully navigated the current state of affairs, there may come a time for an inclusive all-european reflection of how the EU, which is to say both individual Member States and European institutions, have met the challenges of this pandemic. Such a reflection may form the basis for good-practices going forward and may serve in the ongoing dialogue on the future of the EU.
