What has been the biggest challenge so far in the first week of your presidency? What has been the most unexpected turn of events and how have you met them? Did you anticipate the amount of issues the country would be forced to deal with so quickly?
Ami, 9. 1. 2009, 9:41
The UN and the EU want Israel to stop its military operations in Gaza. I understand that a military operation can weaken the strength of the terrorists, but I don't see how UN and EU diplomats will stop the missiles from falling on Israel's towns. What can the UN and the EU do to REALLY protect the people of Israel who are attacked by terrorist missiles every day?
Vincent, 9. 1. 2009, 9:22
What do you think about President Sarkozy's activity with Gaza crisis? I think Czechs are supposed to lead European policy now?
Bernhard Lebert, 9. 1. 2009, 9:21
Dear Mr. Vondra, it is not easy to come by news about the Czech Republic and your internal political situation, but I understand that your government is going throug a crisis and that it has lost a working majority in the Parliament. Should we worry that the government may fall during the period of Czech presidency? Thank you.

Will the Czech presidency take any action in order to hasten Ukraine's accession to the EU? Do you support Ukraine's and Georgia's effort to enter NATO?
J Thorson, 9. 1. 2009, 9:12
Dear Mr. Vondra, I am always unhappy with the lukewarm approach the EU is taking to all major foreign policy issues. We only try to "moderate dialogue", we try never to clearly take sides in order not to cause ourselves trouble - as in the case of Georgia or Gaza. Do you think that it will be ever possible for Europe to act as a strong and united MILITARY power in international relations? What must be done in order to make it possible?
Ian Mangion, 9. 1. 2009, 9:04
Czechs are considerated as European troublemakers. Will they be able to manage the financial crisis?
