FM Ashkenazi, Czech PM inaugurate new diplomatic office in Jerusalem

Lazar Berman is The Times of Israel's diplomatic reporter

Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi and Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis cut the ribbon at the opening of the Czech Republic’s diplomatic office in Jerusalem.

The Czech Republic is the second European Union member state, after Hungary, to open a diplomatic mission in the city. So far, no European countries have embassies there.

Ashkenazi thanks Babis for standing by Israel and for adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism.
