Czech President In Israel, To Start Moving Embassy To Jerusalem

The Czech House will house the Czech cultural, investment, trade and tourism offices.

Miloš Zeman, the president of the Czech Republic – one of the friendliest countries to Israel in Europe – arrived on Sunday for a four-day state visit during which he will inaugurate an office in Jerusalem he said will be the precursor to moving the country’s embassy to the city.

Zeman will open the Czech House in the capital on Tuesday, in the presence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu was present at the opening of the US, Guatemalan and Paraguayan embassies in the capital in May. Paraguay has since moved its embassy back to Tel Aviv.

The Czech House will house the Czech cultural, investment, trade and tourism offices. Zeman’s office issued a statement in September saying that the Czech House “is to be the first step with the intention to relocate the embassy of the Czech Republic to Jerusalem, in accordance with international law.”
