Czech President Milos Zeman hinted on Thursday that his country could follow the United States and move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem sooner or later.
[President] Trumps decision makes me happy because when I visited Israel four years ago, I said that I would like to transfer the embassy, and that if that happens, we will be the first to do so, said the Czech president in a television interview.
He added that every country has the right to decide which city will serve as its capital, and by the same token, every country has the right to decide where its embassy will be located.
Trumps move was meant to demonstrate the self-confidence of the United States, and thats very positive, continued Zeman.
The Czech Republic followed in the footsteps of U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday and said it recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.

Good. Now quit talking and just do it.
Another leader with courage! Do it!
The line forms behind the USA!!!! YES
“Good. Now quit talking and just do it.”
Politics is a dance. Somebody has to lead. Trump is the alpha and he’s leading. (None of this irritating “leading from behind” digested, excreted stuff.)
Zeman probably can’t make the call himself. He will probably have to build a support base for the idea and then make the call. The US president has extraordinary powers granted to him that most world leaders don’t have. So, things work differently in other countries depending on what powers they have.
Are you implying that USA is leading? So...what do we infer? That Trump is making America great again?
Actually, our Congress already approved moving our embassy to Jerusalem years ago. They were just waiting for a real President to show up.
Please help me remember...this ‘controversy’ of America moving her Embassy and declaring Jerusalem the ‘capital’ of Israel was first voted on AND APPROVED BY OUR CONGRESS in, what? 1995?
And ALL OF OUR PRESIDENTS since then, just signed some sort of ‘waiver’ EVERY SIX MONTHS, kicking that can down the road since then? (I’ll bet that was the highlight of 0bama’s rein of terror!)
And now President Trump has picked up the can and is using it as a megaphone...and everyone is bent over this?
OK. Got it!
‘95 if I heard correctly.
*PING* to Post #9. :)
American President = BALLS
Check President = NO BALLS
POTUS was never meant to be anything but a leader of men.
We've found one I do believe.
One man. Our President. Changing our world so fast, for the better.
I love alpha males.
“every country has the right to decide where its embassy will be located.
sorry mister Czech man, I don’t agree. I don’t want - for instance - muslim countries saying they want their embassy in the USA in certain places. I think each country can work with each country to say where embassy ends up. If host country o k with it great, if not then guest embassy cannot be there.
“Check President = NO BALLS”
You’re out of line. He was being supportive of Trump. The Czechs, along with Hungary and Poland, are among our best allies.
fine. then. get in line. be decisive.
The Brits won’t do it because they have been overrun by Muslims
and are afraid of their own Muslim population.
Actually (ahem) they were probably counting on a President NOT to show up. Then they could pretend to support both sides.
It's what those mugwumps do best.
