Bill Clinton flew to Prague.  He will give a speech on the anniversary of the Czech Republic joining NATO

Former American President Bill Clinton arrived in Prague from the United States on Saturday evening. On Tuesday, he will speak at the Our Security conference in the Spanish Hall of Prague Castle, where participants will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Czech Republic’s entry into the North Atlantic Alliance. The report comes from the Czech news television ČT24.

Clinton was the head of the White House from 1993 to 2001, when NATO expanded to include Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. He came to Prague at the invitation of Czech President Peter Pavle.

The conference Our security is organized by the association Jagello 2000 and, in addition to Clinton, Czech constitutional officials and former NATO Secretary General George Robertson will speak at it. The organizers of the conference recalled that at the beginning of his first term, Clinton for the first time in history outlined a vision of Europe without conflicts, undivided and democratic.

The American ex-president visited Prague several times. First in the 1970s as a 24-year-old student, then in January 1994 as the 42nd president of the USA. It was a turning point for the Czech Republic at that time. Clinton confirmed in Prague that NATO was interested in expanding, and this happened five years later in 1999 – former Soviet satellites became new members for the first time, in addition to the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary.

Clinton also came to Prague in 2001, as a former ex-president, at the invitation of Václav Havel.

In 2011, Clinton came to say goodbye to Václav Havel. Together with the then British prime minister and the French president, he and his wife and the then head of American diplomacy, Hillary Clinton, were among the most prominent politicians who attended Havel’s funeral. He called the Czech president his friend, ČT24 reported.
