Prime Minister Sobotka: Congratulations to General Pavel, this is a success for our army and for the country as a whole

I would like to congratulate Army General Petr Pavel for his election today as Chairman of the NATO Military Committee. This is one of the most important positions within the Alliance, which is a clear professional appraisal not only of General Pavel, but is also an important diplomatic success for the Czech Republic. Our General will become the first ever representative from the countries of central and Eastern Europe to take up such an important post in NATO. This clearly shows the appreciation of the ability of our military, as well as the will of the Czech Republic to participate actively in the performance of our commitments to the Alliance.

Bohuslav Sobotka, Prime Minister of the CR
