Prague also condemned the latest anti-Israel resolution out of UNESCO, and vowed to stop supporting the UN body until it changes its attitude towards the Jewish state.

 Following the decision, Czech politicians from various parties, as well as Jewish and Christian friends of Israel, assembled in Jerusalem for a special ceremony.

 The Czech Republic is today one of Israel’s closest friends in Europe.
