‘Israel will always be able to rely on the support of the Czech Republic,’ Czech PM tells President Peres during meeting in Jerusalem
President Shimon Peres met on Friday morning with visiting Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek. Topolanek emphasized his country’s commitment to advancing ties between Israel and the European Union.
The Czech Republic holds the current EU presidency, which rotates between its members. «We will work so that the voices in Europe calling to slow down or freeze the promotion of relations to Israel won’t get what they’re after,» he said, adding that «Israel will always be able to rely on the support of the Czech Republic.»
