Jerusalem / Ramala – Czech Foreign Minister Tomas Petricek today opens a two-day visit to Israel and Palestine. The minister goes to Israel two weeks before President Milos Zeman, who will open the Czech house in Jerusalem, visited the country. According to Zeman, this should be the first step towards the future transfer of the Czech Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Petriček in Jerusalem will visit the upcoming Czech house, which will be opened on November 27 by the president. The minister is also awaiting talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and will attend the opening of the sixth year of the Czech-Israeli forum.
The Czech Foreign Minister on his way to the Middle East will also visit the Palestinian territories. In Ramallah, he will deal with Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyadh Maliki on prospects for the Middle East peace process and on relations between the Czech Republic and Palestine.
