Václav Havel – the former dissident turned president following the Velvet Revolution - discussed steps the Czechs had taken since 1989, saying that the basic direction was right. He made the statement while recalling the days after November 1989 at a commemorative act honouring students who stood up to the former Communist regime. At the same time, the former president indicated he was sorry that the Czech Republic had echoed some mistakes made by democracies established earlier. He said on the whole he was not disappointed - pointing out that the country was experiencing the longest period of security in its history.
