Foreign Minister Martin Stropnický is preparing to exit high politics and become the next Czech ambassador to Israel, news site aktualne.cz reported Friday, citing sources in ANO and the current government. Mr Stropnický, who was defence minister prior and has served in diplomacy before (in the Vatican, Italy, and Portugal) is an actor by profession.
He was named foreign minister in the current government in resignation in December of last year.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Michaela Lagronová said the ministry would issue a statement only when the supposed candidate received his credentials.
