Czech President Milos Zeman visits the Knesset, is hailed by Netanyahu

Czech President Milos Zeman, on an official visit to Israel, visits the Knesset.

He is welcomed in the plenum by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a special session in Zeman’s honor.

“We were all moved when you declared in your speech on Israel’s 70th birthday, ‘Next year in Jerusalem,'” Netanyahu says to Zeman. “Indeed, it took less than a year” for Zeman to visit Jerusalem. Netanyahu calls Zeman “a great leader who defends the truth.”

The PM adds: “You were one of the first leaders in this generation to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.”
