Former foreign minister to open academy of diplomacy

Former foreign minister Cyril Svoboda said on Monday that his plan to open a private academy of diplomacy should also attract students from abroad to the Czech Republic. He added that his academy would not be in competition with the foreign ministry’s academy of diplomacy, where the country’s future diplomats are educated. Mr. Svoboda said that Stefan Füle, the European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood Policy, as well as Mr. Füle’s predecessor Vladimír Špidla, had already pledged their support for the new academy.
