Palestinians complain about Czech ambassador to Israel

Member of the executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Saeb Erekat, has complained to the EU’s foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, about the activities of the Czech ambassador to Israel, the Palestinian news agency WAFA reported. In a letter to Baroness Ashton, Mr Erekat denounced ambassador Tomáš Pojar’s visit to a Jewish settlement in the West Bank last week. The visit undermined the EU’s support of the peace efforts and a settlement based on the two-state solution on the 1967 borders, according to Mr Erekat. In a reaction, Ambassador Pojar told the news agency ČTK his activities were in line with EU policies.
