PA hails Czech decision not to move embassy to Jerusalem


T he Palestinian Authority (PA) on Monday welcomed the Czech Republic’s decision to backtrack on its previous plan to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Occupied Jerusalem.

The PA Foreign Ministry in an official statement praised the Czech Republic’s “commitment to the international law and resolutions and the European Union’s position on the legal status of the city of Jerusalem.”

On Saturday, the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Andrej Babiš affirmed that his country does not consider moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Most of the European countries have criticized the US president Donald Trump’s move of transferring the US embassy in Israel to Occupied Jerusalem, and decided to wait until the Israeli-Palestinian talks on Jerusalem are settled.
