Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called his Czech counterpart Petr Necas on Saturday to express his gratitude that the Czech Republic was the sole European country to vote against the Palestinian status upgrade at the United Nations on Thursday.

"The history of Israel and the Czech Republic has taught us that you must adhere to the truth even if the majority is not on your side," Netanyahu stated.

Netanyahu was scheduled to travel to Prague next week prior to a state visit to Germany.
