Czech Republic won’t relocate embassy to Holy Quds: Report

Tehran, Despite Israeli officials' claim, Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis announced that his country would not transfer its embassy from Holy Quds to Tel Aviv.

To recognize Holy Quds as the capital of of Israel, the Czech Republic will not move against the policies adopted by the United Nations and the European Union,' Babis has said according to foreign media.

On December 6, 2017, the US decided to relocate its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem (Holy Quds), but The United Nations General Assembly, on December 21, adopted a resolution to reject the US' move.

In a related development, Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said on Friday (April 20) that he opposed relocating embassy to Jerusalem (Holy Quds.)

Although political figures and international organizations including the UN as well as all the EU member states have already warned Washington not to transfer its embassy, the US President Donald Trump still insists on its decision.
