Ambassador King Celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the Velvet Revolution

Ambassador King celebrated the 30 years of freedom in the Czech Republic and laid a wreath at the plaque commemorating the anti-communist Velvet Revolution at Národní třída on November 17th:

“I find it humbling to pay tribute, at this memorial, to those who struggled for the freedom of all Czechs during the Velvet Revolution. You inspired the world in 1989 when you brought democracy to millions. The United States stands by you in defending the freedoms that your government, and mine, is elected to secure as we build a more prosperous and safer world.”
