Rusnok backs Zeman’s choices for ambassador to Moscow and Bratislava
The new prime minister says he has no objections to the president’s proposals regarding the appointment of ambassadors. He told Czech Radio on Wednesday, on the contrary, that he regarded Mr Zeman’s choices for ambassador to Moscow and Bratislava as positive. The president wants Communist MEP and one-time cosmonaut Vladimír Remek to be made the Czech Republic’s envoy in Russia and Livia Klausová, wife of his predecessor Václav Klaus, to be the country’s representative in Slovakia. Mr Zeman was at loggerheads with outgoing foreign minister Karel Schwarzenberg over the two appointments.
