Hungarians are commemorating the Velvet Revolution of 1989, “a year of miracles” in central and eastern Europe, together with Czechs and Slovaks, László Kövér, Hungary’s speaker of parliament, said in Prague on Sunday.
At the invitation of the president of the Czech Senate Jaroslav Kubera, the speakers of the four Visegrad Group countries celebrated the 30th anniversary of Czechoslovakia’s change in political system.
“I’m convinced we offer Europe the moral capital of the 1989 Velvet Revolution, as well as the experiences of the change of system in central Europe, as an indispensable resource in this unparalleled global political situation,” Kövér said at the commemoration held in the Czech National Museum. Meanwhile, the speakers praised V4 cooperation and highlighted the need to deepen ties.
