“Existing conflicts are still deepening and new ones are increasing,” said Pavel. According to him, the growing self-confidence and assertiveness of revisionist powers and terrorist organizations, polarization within societies, rapid technological development, waves of disinformation, the fragility of the international, economic and legal model or concerns about the effects of the coming climate crisis lead to fears.

According to the president, Russia is far from defeated in Ukraine. According to him, it is necessary to continue supporting the attacked country in all areas. It is crucial for Europe and for peace and stability in the whole world, he believes. He considers it necessary to prevent Russian imperial policy from becoming a source of inspiration for possible followers.
“It is not only about Ukraine. The destabilization of the international order is evident almost everywhere. Frozen conflicts are reawakening, for example, in the Caucasus, and the wave of military coups in African countries, especially in the Sahel, is causing increasing concern. The explosive potential of the current crisis in the Middle East, which was provoked by the barbaric attack of Hamas on Israel, is then obvious above all else,” said the president.
According to Pavel, diplomacy must remain one of the tools for ensuring security. He said it must always precede a military solution. The President also considers it important to strengthen especially those ties that will reduce dependence on unreliable partners and help to return to technological excellence.

“The role of diplomacy is also irreplaceable in the case of an intensifying crisis in the Middle East. Let us condemn any manifestations of barbaric violence against civilians and aggression in principle, emphasize our clear starting points and firm value positions, pragmatically cultivate bilateral relations, help prevent the conflict from spreading, and help find solutions leading to peaceful coexistence,” said Pavel.
According to the head of state, Czech diplomacy must also be active in the countries of the global South, which are vulnerable in many ways. Their instability or leaning towards global authoritarian actors represent a real security threat, he believes.
“I have repeatedly emphasized that we unnecessarily left a number of countries, especially in Africa, at the mercy of Russian and Chinese influence and did not offer them an attractive alternative. I welcome that the Czech Republic is trying to return to its lost positions and offer fair partnerships,” remarked Pavel. Prime Minister Petr Fiala (ODS) is currently on a week-long visit to sub-Saharan Africa. He is accompanied by representatives of Czech companies.
