December 18, 2007: Premier To Commemorate Army Anniversary

On Tuesday, December 18, 2007, Czech Premier Mirek Topolánek will play host to the Ambassadors of France and the Slovak Republic to the Czech Republic, Czech Ambassador to France, Czech Defence Minister, and the Chief of the General Staff of the Army of the Czech Republic.

The occasion will be the 90th anniversary of the formation of an independent Czechoslovak armed force within the French Army. The French Government had given its permission to its establishment in an official gazette on December 19, 1917. Seen from an international perspective, this was a major step on the path to the proclamation of independent Czechoslovakia (which came in October 1918).
