Czech President Václav Klaus on Wednesday criticized the EU for curbing the Czech Republic’s option of retaliation after Canada imposed visas on Czech nationals. He said the difference between the Czech Republic and Canada in this dispute was that Ottawa was free to make its own decisions while Prague’s hands were tied. It is Brussels that will decide for us, the president said. Mr. Klaus is a fierce opponent of the Lisbon treaty which he has so far refused to sign, saying it threatens Czech sovereignty.
