PM against suggestion that Czech embassy could move to Jerusalem

Prime Minister Andrej Babiš has said he does not agree with the idea that the Czech Embassy in Tel Aviv could be moved to Jerusalem. President Miloš Zeman brought up the possibility after expressing backing for US President Donald Trump who officially recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital this week.

Prime Minister Babiš told Czech Radio’s flagship station Radiožurnál that it was important not to create new conflicts in the Middle East, saying that the Czech Republic was a “small country which should try and work for peace”.
