Czech Foreign Minister Tomáš Petříček has welcomed the news that the last IS enclave in Baghuz, eastern Syria, has been taken.

He added however that the fight against international terrorism was not definitively over and said the Czech Republic was ready to cooperate with its allies to help end the conflict in Syria by all the means at its disposal.

The Czech Republic is the only EU member state that operates an embassy in Syria where it also represents the interests of the US.
