President Klaus, last week you said in a TV interview that the roots of the migration crisis, which has hit Europe, should be looked for in the Western policies toward the Middle East over the past years. Why do you think Europe failed to adequately estimate the dangers of the Arab Spring?
No, I didn´t say that. I strictly differentiate between the supply side and the demand side of migration. The intentional (not underestimated) European and especially American “export of democracy” to the Arab world destabilized the Middle East.

The European Union steps into 2017 burdened with huge issues – a never-ending flow of migrants, continuing euro zone woes, and tensions with Russia. Growing frustration with Brussels is threatening to challenge the status quo in the EU, and with elections coming up in key member states, alternative political forces could be one step away from power.

Thank you for giving me the floor at this Speakers´ Reception. This is not for the first time, I appreciate it. I am, however, not sure it is reciprocal. It seems to me that I always disappoint you. I am afraid it will not be different now.
The topic which was suggested to me – what will make Europe better – is interesting and challenging.

I greeted the outcome of the last year´s British referendum with great joy because I do believe that its outcome has opened a new chapter in the European history. I am convinced that Europe needed it very much. I am also aware of the fact that this position of mine is a minority view here, at this panel, at least among the speakers. To my great regret, there are no Russian participants here with us today.

Many thanks for the invitation. It is great to be in Cairo and Egypt again, after more than six years. Last time I was here in February 2010 as President of the Czech Republic on a formal state visit. This visit gave me also a chance to present here the Arabic version of my book “Blue Planet in Green Shackles” which was devoted to the criticism of global warming alarmism.

A. I don´t look at the world from a distant planet, I look at it from Central Europe, from Prague. This is Europe, this is geographically the heart of Europe, but this is a part of Europe with a valuable and instructive history and experience.

We welcome the result of the U.S. Presidential elections with great joy. We are convinced it is a good result for America, Europe, the West as well as the Czech Republic. It is a good result for the whole world. We dare say that we are also among the winners and we are proud of it.

The Principality of Liechtenstein manages to survive the world-wide process of internationalization and globalization of all kinds of human activities as a small but – as compared to the rest of Europe – liberal island of reason. It does it in spite of, or perhaps thanks to, its aristocratic, if not feudal state structure. The undisputed and undisputable fact of its liberal orientation has many reasons and possible explanations.
