The Palestinian authority in the West Bank has announced it will withdraw its ambassador from the Czech Republic and three other European countries, Austria, Romania, and Hungary. The move is a response to representatives from the countries attending a reception to mark the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.
The Czech foreign ministry said that it had noted the move but would not be taking reciprocal action. Prague has said it will by the end of the month open an honorary consulate in Jerusalem and a so-called Czech House for cultural exchanges by the end of the year.
