Czechs agree to establish Belarusian opposition representation in Prague

An official representation of the Belarusian opposition will be established in Prague, the Czech government and President Miloš Zeman agreed at a meeting on Monday.

Foreign Minister Jakub Kulhánek (Social Democrats) said via Twitter that the representation should be set up in accord with the one in Lithuania, where Belarusian opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya has been living in exile since running against Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

Tsikhanouskaya had visited Prague in early June to meet some of the Czech Republic’s top officials and members of the large Belarusian exile community resident there.
