    Background: An official meeting was held in Prague on Wednesday (May 5) evening to celebrate the 26th anniversary of the liberation of Czechoslovakia from German occupation by the Soviet Union. Among the Party and state leaders who addressed the meeting was Communist Party Presidium Member Alois Indra, who thanked the Soviet Union for its help to Czechoslovakia both in 1945 and 1968 -- the latter a reference to the intervention by Warsaw Pact forces.

    The occasion was also the first anniversary of a friendship, cooperation and mutual help treaty signed between the two countries.
