Czech President Petr Pavel confirmed Prague's intention to appoint an ambassador to Russia after a meeting of high-ranking foreign policy officials.
This was reported by iROZHLAS.
According to Pavel, there is no fundamental disagreement about whether to appoint someone to the post of the Czech ambassador to Moscow, but there is a discussion about the timing.
"Now we are in a situation where both the ambassador and the "second number" in the embassy have to be replaced. Probably, the order will be reversed, i.e. we will first deal with the deputy and then the ambassador," Pavel said.
At the same time, the Czech president indicated that Prague would take into account Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
For his part, Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala said that he considers it appropriate to act in accordance with the position of the Czech Republic's allies.
"Yesterday (Wednesday) in Moscow, representatives of a number of states and from Europe presented their credentials. We should consider the issue in this context," he said.
