Czech President Milos Zeman doubled down on his intent to see his country’s embassy in Israel relocate from Tel Aviv to Yerushalayim, saying that he plans to push the move through.

Zeman was sworn in for a second term as president of the Czech Republic last week. While the post is largely ceremonial, the president does have some leverage on strategic matters.

In an interview, Zeman said: “It was my pleasure to publicly support the decision of US President Donald Trump, who acknowledged Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and ordered the launch of necessary steps to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv.”
