US president-elect Donald Trump will deliver new political perspectives, says the Czech minister of foreign affairs, Lubomír Zaorálek. In a statement to the Czech News Agency, Mr. Zaorálek said Mr. Trump would begion a new stage in Czech-US relations and continue the partnership and alliance between the two states. With regard to the US’s relationship with NATO, the Czech foreign policy chief told Czech Television that the post-election reality would be different from Mr. Trump’s pronouncements during his campaign. The American president-elect said in July that NATO’s principle that an attack on one is an attack on all would be conditional on all members paying “their fair share”.
