Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis said he is ready to debate with the Czech President Milos Zeman about Kosovo, B92 reports. President Zeman said yesterday in Belgrade that he would in a month time during the meeting of constitutional authorities in Prague ask whether it is possible to revoke recognition of Kosovo, Serbian media reported.
“I would prefer debates on this subject in our foreign relations meeting, that is, on the meeting attended by the President, the Speakers of both Houses of Parliament, the Prime Minister, the Head of Diplomacy and the Minister of Police. Our positions do not match. I will wait for the debate, and then take some stance on it”, PM Babis told reporters.
Meanwhile, the Czech First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Jan Hamáček recalled that Czech foreign policy is the responsibility of the Cabinet of Ministers. “Mr. President’s stance on Kosovo has long been known. Any further steps, however, are within the Government’s responsibility,” he said, quoted by Sputnik.
