Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hosted visiting Czech President Milos Zeman at the Prime Minister's residence Tuesday.
Netanyahu praised the opening of a "Czech house" in Jerusalem as a prelude to the prospective move of the Czech embassy to the city."This is an amazing opportunity to host the Czech president and first lady, Milos and Ivana, in our home," Netanyahu said. "This is a wonderful friendship, and you expressed it powerfully yesterday."
"We say 'next year in Jerusalem,' and next year we hope to see an embassy in Jerusalem," Netanyahu added. "But next year in Prague we will have an inter-governmental meeting."
