Saakashvili awards Vatslav Havel with St. Giorgi order

10.10.11 18:22

Democracy and the Rule of Law - President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili opened the conference organized by the Vatslav Havel Foundation in Prague today. President delivered a speech at the Forum 2000, reviewing Georgia`s foreign policy, global processes and the reforms conducted by the government of Georgia in recent years.

Before his speech, Mikheil Saakashvili awarded ex-president of the Czech Republic Vatslav Havel with the Order of Saint Giorgi. The ceremony was held at the Embassy of Georgia in Prague. Mikheil Saakashvili spoke about the role of Mr. Havel in the process of reinforcing democracy and thanked him for his policy conducted after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

`We are all sons of Vatslav Havel. For anybody who grew on the other side of the iron curtain and dreaming about freedom or democracy, activist and reformist leaders, are over the world and especially in our region, I think his name resonates more than anything else. The end of Soviet Union was not the end of history; it was the beginning of history for all of us. Thanks to you and many other Vatslav, we were allowed to leave the cold museum,` Saakashvili said.

In his turn, Mr. Havel thanked Georgian president for the order of Saint Giorgi.
`Every time I attend such events, I ask myself, do we deserve such honor and such orders? I was in Georgia 44 years ago. As the president, I travelled to many countries, but Georgia is still in my heart. I hope that Georgia will restore its historic borders without bloodshed and Georgia, as the part of Europe, will become the member of the European Union,` Vatslav Havel said.
