President: Democracy Cannot Be Enforced from Outside

Warsaw, 27 May - President Danilo Tuerk called for reflection on democracy as a theoretical concept as opposed to democracy in practice, as a two-day summit of leaders from Central and Eastern Europe kicked off in Warsaw on Friday. He stressed that democracy cannot be imposed from outside, it must come from within.
