Czech Republic announces it recognizes West Jerusalem as Israel's capital
The Czech Republic on Wednesday followed US President Donald Trump’s lead, AzVision.az reports JPost.
“The Czech Republic together with other EU member states, following the EU Foreign Affaires Council Conclusions, considers Jerusalem to be future capital of both states, meaning the State of Israel and the future State of Palestine.”
In so doing, it took an unusual step of breaking with EU member states who hold Jerusalem should not recognized as Israel’s capital until a final status agreement is reached.
But unlike the US, the Czech Foreign Ministry also said that it would only consider relocating its embassy based on results of negotiations.
