Newsline: Czech Republic Considering Moving Embassy to Jerusalem

The Czech Republic is considering moving its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, following a similar move by the United States earlier this year. The opening of a Czech cultural center in Jerusalem in November could be understood as a “first step,” a spokesman for President Milos Zeman said. He added that the move could only happen “in accordance with international law.” The United States riled Palestinians when it moved the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in May. Zeman, the most important supporter of the plan to move the embassy to Jerusalem, is expected to hold an official visit to Israel in November.
