Czech Republic reopens honorary consulate in Jerusalem


The Czech Republic on Tuesday reopened its honorary consulate in Jerusalem, APA reports citing the CTK news agency.

 

CTK named Dan Propper, a 78-year-old Israeli businessman of Czech origin, as the new honorary consul.

 

"I see my contribution as being especially focused on economic relations because I have links to the local entrepreneurial community," Propper told the news agency, as quoted by AFP.

 

Opened in the early 1990s, the Czech honorary consulate in Jerusalem was closed in 2016 due to the death of the honorary consul.

 

The move comes after President Milos Zeman voiced his wish to move the Czech embassy to the city from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
