Czech Senate President Miloš Vystrčil is calling on democracies to stand in unity to safeguard shared values. Vystrčil made the remarks in his speech at Taiwan’s Legislature on Tuesday.

Despite pressure from China, Vystrčil is leading a 89-person delegation from the Czech Republic on a five-day visit to Taiwan.

Vystrčil is the first foreign parliamentary speaker to give a speech at the Legislature in 45 years. On Tuesday, he was awarded a diplomatic medal of honor by Legislature President Yu Shyi-kun.
