Minister of Defence expresses his sympathy for Margaret Thatcher

Minister of Defence Vlastimil Picek signed a book of condolences for Baroness Margaret Thatcher expressing his sympathy on her passing at the British Embassy in Prague on Thursday 11 April 2013.

“As a politician and as a person, she was an inspiration to an entire generation. She never betrayed the principles she believed in - democracy, market economy, freedom of choice, freedom of speech. To those of us behind the Iron Curtain, she embodied all these virtues of freedom that we have no been able to enjoy for four decades“, Vlastimil Picek says, and adds: “For all of this, our generation will always remain grateful for the opportunity to be inspired, motivated and energized by the example she has set.“

Baroness Margaret Thatcher, the British Prime Minister 1970 to 1990, died Monday 8 April 2013 in her 87.
