Ambassador´s interview on the upcoming Korean Independence Day

In celebration of the upcoming Korean Independence Day on August 15th, Ambassador Gustav Slamečka gave an interview to ArirangTV's The Diplomat to highlight the historic encounter of the Czech Legions and Koreans during the Japanese colonization.
 
 

In this interview, Ambassador shared the stories about Czech Legions' cooperation with Korean independence activists in 1920 through the arms deal which is known to have contributed to Koreans' victory in representative resistance movements such as the Battle of Cheongsanri (in Korean: 청산리 전투) against Japanese troops.

 

In addition, Ambassador Slamečka introduced Korea as featured in the records of old Czech books and newspaper articles. Especially, he read a few Czech articles on Československý Deník (Czechoslovak Daily) for the viewers in English which delivered news to Czech citizens about colonized Korea and its movements for freedom and independence.

 

The stories of friendship and solidarity in the older civil relations between Korean and Czech people make this year of the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations even more special. Ambassador Slamečka's interview was aired on ArirangTV on Tuesday, August 11th, and it can be watched on ArirangTV's YouTube Channel below.
