The new US ambassador to the Czech Republic, Stephen King, has offered his credentials to the Czech president Miloš Zeman and may now officially assume his duties. Mr King, a rich Republican businessman with no previous diplomatic experience, met with the Czech head of state at Prague Castle on Wednesday.
Stephen King, who is 75, worked for the FBI early in his career and was an investigator for the US Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. According to US media reports, King is personally connected with some close advisors to US president Donald Trump.
The president on Wednesday accepted credentials of another three newly appointed ambassadors. The diplomats are from Tunisia, Malaysia and Lebanon.
