En netop udgivet artikel af den lettiske forsker, Didzis Klavins, redegør for Danmarks rolle i forbindelse med Letlands genvundne selvstændighed i 1991

I forbindelse med 25 års jubilæet for Letlands genvundne selvstændighed, har forskeren fra University of Latvia og Riga Graduate School of Law, Didzis Klavins, skrevet en artikel om Danmarks rolle i forbindelse med de baltiske landes genvundne selvstændighed i 1991.

Om artiklen udtaler Didzis Klavins: Looking back on the last 25 years, when Latvia regained its independence, it is important to bear in mind those countries that were alongside Latvia when the shoulder of a strong friend was needed.

Denmark was one of the most visible nations. The aim of this article is to highlight a part of the most important events and unexplored historical testimonies that helped Latvia, along with its neighbours Estonia and Lithuania, to be heard in the international arena and provided significant support to the efforts of politicians and diplomats from the Baltic States in rapidly renewing the independence of their countries. With Denmark’s foreign minister Uffe Ellemann-Jensen at the forefront, Denmark strongly and resolutely supported independence for Latvia already before August 21, 1991.
