Czech President Vaclav Klaus will arrive in Moscow to participate in the celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the victory over Nazism on May 9, 2005
Czech President Vaclav Klaus will arrive in Moscow to participate in the celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the victory over Nazism on May 9, 2005, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. We are satisfied with this decision, he noted. Speaking about the possibility of Vladimir Putin's visit to the Czech Republic, Mr. Lavrov said that the two leaders maintained regular contacts. "President Putin was invited to visit the Czech Republic and he is sure to do it," the minister said. "There are no closed topics and issues that we cannot discuss in our relations with the Czech Republic," Sergei Lavrov said following the talks with Czech Foreign Minister Cyril Svoboda. The fight against terrorism will be playing a growing role in Russian-Czech relations, in particular, in Russia-NATO context. "We believe that it is necessary to consolidate the unity of the anti-terrorist coalition. We have discussed the recent international actions in this sphere, including the approval of the Russian draft resolution of the UN Security Council demanding intolerance towards terrorists from all countries," Mr. Lavrov noted. According to the Russian minister, Russia and the Czech Republic are considering maximal simplification of visa regulations for the two countries' citizens. On his part, the Czech Foreign Minister noted that Prague wanted Russians get visas with no problems. "Our consular possibilities in Moscow are used by 50-80% and we have potential to improve their work," Cyril Svoboda said. He presented his Russian counterpart with a Prussian saber and invited Russian representatives to attend the anniversary celebrations of the battle of Austerlitz. Handing the gift, Mr. Svoboda said he knew that Sergei Lavrov collected sabers. "The head of the protocol department of our Foreign Ministry made a case for this saber," the Czech minister said smiling. I guess this saber was found near Austerlitz, Sergei Lavrov noted kidding. The sides also discussed the situation in Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Middle East and the conflict settlement in Georgia and Moldova
