Israel making efforts to influence Czechs moving-embassy decision

(MENAFN) Israel is making efforts so that the Czech Republic moves its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds, Israel's Channel 10 has reported.

The broadcaster cited a classified cable by Israel's Ambassador to Prague Daniel Meron, saying that Israeli pressures following the steps of the US and Guatemala to move their embassies have made the Czech Republic more open to following suit.

Prague "has begun a quiet internal staff evaluation to examine the possibilities and risks regarding the transfer of its embassy," the cable written to the Israeli foreign ministry last week said.

The decision will be made by Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis, who is seen as particularly risk averse, Channel 10 said.

Earlier, US president recognized the holy city of Jerusalem al-Quds as the Zionist entity's so-called "capital", sparking wide range protests among the Arab world and pro-Palestine nations.
