  • Speaker Mūrniece at the high-level foreign policy and security conference: The sanctity of borders is violated; its values are challenged
    issues have never been simple for Europe and their significance has increased as a result of harsh and unexpected events Europe started to question its solutions its attitudes its ability to react in a timely manner and to take the right remedies The rapid unpredictable and embarrassing geopolitical developments can be observed in Latvia s neighbourhood There are politicians who believe that peace can be achieved and wealth financial gain and comfort can be preserved by satisfying the aggressor s growing demands said the Speaker with concern In this context she recalled the Munich Agreement of 1938 when international partners believed that they were ensuring peace by permitting the annexation of a part of Czechoslovakia That peace did not last and it resulted in a major pan European war Ināra Mūrniece stressed that the lessons of the past should not be forgotten Concurrently the Speaker of the Saeima acknowledged that the situation today is even more complex than the one in 1938 We in the Baltics have a neighbour who constantly reminds us of its nuclear potential Russia s possession of nuclear power is combined with the growing wave of hatred that resulted in an appalling political murder last week said Ināra Mūrniece She emphasised that even under the current circumstances we should not stop seeking solutions and regardless of a certain confusion in Europe I dare to say that Europe has not lost its eagerness to look for solutions and I truly believe that they will be found In her address to the audience Speaker Mūrniece strongly condemned the hybrid warfare launched by Russia in the eastern regions of Ukraine which inter alia contain elements of information warfare We have realised that security threats are no longer only of a military nature therefore we have to develop our capability
