The Czech Republic backs the US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel

The Czech Republic today expressed support for the decision of US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The Czech Republic said before the peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians was signed, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel according to the demarcation line since 1967, the Czech Republic said in a statement on the website of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs. . "

"The Czech Republic along with other EU member states, such as the conclusions of the Council on Foreign Affairs of the European Union, consider Jerusalem as the future capital for both countries, meaning the State of Israel and the future state of Palestine,"

The Czechs thus took a different stance with other EU member states that up to now do not regard Jerusalem as the capital of Israel until an agreement on the status of the city reaches the final word.

Unlike the US, the Czech Foreign Ministry also said it would consider removal of the embassy based on the outcome of the negotiations
