Czech ambassador to NATO: There must be no more statements damaging Czech credibility

Czech Ambassador to NATO Jakub Landovský said that the statement made by presidential candidate Andrej Babiš, which cast doubt on Czechia’s solidarity with its allies, had been explained and had not caused irreparable damage. However, he warned that if this were to happen more often, the Czech Republic would become an untrustworthy country for its allies. He said several colleagues from Poland and the Baltic states had asked him to explain the statement and he had assured them that Czechia stands firmly behind its allies not only in word but also in deed, adding that the statement had been retracted soon afterwards.
