The Liechtenstein family will not try to reclaim family property in the Czech Republic that was confiscated from them after World War II on the basis of the Benes decrees, Prince Hans Adam said on Friday. The prince said his family would be glad to have the property returned, but it would take no legal steps to do so, because the most important issue was maintaining good-relations between the two countries. The Czech Republic and the Principality of Liechtenstein established diplomatic relations earlier this month after a 60 year rift caused by the property dispute. The Liechtensteins owned extensive properties in the Czech Republic, including the UNESCO-listed complex of the Lednice and Valtice chateaus in south Moravia.
