organization of this conference. In reply a letter pointing out the gravity
of using Depleted Uranium in war operations in Persian Gulf and in Balkans,
sent to the President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Havel by the
vice-chairman of our association Res publica Jiri Horak, it was stated that
the problem of using arms with depleted uranium is becoming ever more
relevant and that V. Havel has been perceiving susceptibly all possible
perils making possible with the deployment of arms of this type to endanger
the health of all peoples. In organizing this conference we wish to
contribute to the realization of the idea, supported also according to the
mentioned reply by Vaclav Havel, that the whole problematic would be
subjected to a proper expert opinion and on this basis relevant conclusions
would be deduced as well as urgent steps resulting in the security of the
protection of human lives.
> It is just this reason that we are laying the central point of this
conference on an expert level. We are interested in hearing at this
conference technical, military, political, juristic, health, ecological and
other expert's views on this problem. We have requested Prof. Jiri Matousek
from the Institute of Environmental Chemistry and Technology Faculty of
Chemistry, Brno University of Technology from Czech Republic, to be an
expert moderator at this Conference "Facts on Depleted Uranium". From quite
natural reasons we consider it correct to invite also members of various
humanitarian, health, ecological and peace organizations. For your

calculate with the participation of the approximately fifty persons.
