Presidents of the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia on Wednesday morning in Warsaw met youth under the slogan "1989 - the Freedom Generation" as part of the celebrations marking Poland's 25th anniversary of ditching communism.

 
Delegations of young people from the five countries came to Warsaw's Royal Castle on Wednesday morning to meet the presidents.
 
"It is worth recalling the events that happened 25 years ago and stress the community of good faith that we were lucky to experience, but we should also think about what to next with the freedom, as freedom is not given once and for all, it requires continued efforts," Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski said at the meeting.
 
President Komorowski also praised the quality of Poland-Germany and Poland-Ukraine relations. "I would also like to see agreement and reconciliation between the Polish and Russian nations," he said, adding that the Polish society had largely positive attitudes towards Czechs, Slovaks and Hungarians.
 
German President Joachim Gauck stressed that the Polish experience of overcoming the communist rule had inspired Eastern Germans to stand up against the regime.
We regard freedom as something obvious, but in fact it needs constant attention, struggle and care, Czech President Milos Zeman remarked.
 
Referring to Ukraine, Slovak President Ivan Gasparovic noted that people should realise how fragile peace can be and said that during the meetings in Warsaw, the presidents had discussed peace which "is under threat close to our borders, where we saw no danger before."
 
Hungarian President Janos Ader stressed that for the children of his generation all civil liberties were natural. Despite some financial or bureaucratic obstacles, if someone is talented and has the strength and determination, there are no ideological or political barriers to doing business, he stressed. (PAP)
