Czech foreign minister to visit Israel, Palestine

Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg is to make a working visit to Israel and the Palestinian autonomous territory between January 22 and 24. The ongoing conflict in the region will be at the top of the agenda for talks. Relations between the Czech Republic and Israel have been close in the aftermath of communism. Mr. Schwarzenberg made a similar visit at the end of 2008 during his first stint as foreign minister. His successor in the post, Jan Kohout, visited the region at the end of 2009. Current Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Liberman visited Prague in 2009.
