Security to be stepped up for visit by Chinese president


No fly zones, also affecting drones, over parts of Prague including Prague castle and the government offices and the president’s country seat at Lány will apply during the visit by Chinese President, Xi Jinping. The first ever visit by the head of the Chinese Peoples’ Republic takes place from March 28 to March 30. Security zones will also be created at areas where activities linked to the visit are scheduled. Due to the level one security alert now prevailing in the Czech Republic, these areas will be patrolled by mixed contingents of police and army. Residents and visitors entering these zone will also be liable for security checks.
