Two of President Miloš Zeman’s closest associates at his Prague Castle office are in line for ambassadorial posts, Hospodářské noviny reported on Wednesday. Mr. Zeman’s head of protocol, Jindřich Forejt, looks set to receive a long-mooted appointment as Czech ambassador to the Vatican, the newspaper said. However, the move is not expected to occur until late 2017, shortly before the president’s term ends. His foreign policy advisor, Hynek Kmoníček, is expected to become the country’s ambassador to Washington in around a year’s time. Hospodářské noviny said the planned departure of two key members of Mr. Zeman’s staff suggested he may not seek a second term.
