Schwarzenberg takes a jab at Zeman in Austrian newspaper

Former foreign minister Karel Schwarzenberg made a number of critical remarks about President Miloš Zeman in an interview with the Austrian weekly Presse am Sonntag. Mr. Schwarzenberg said that although he considers President Zeman to be a smart individual, and a first-class public speaker, his addiction to alcohol has caused him to loose all moral inhibitions. He also reiterated his earlier belief that Mr. Zeman’s interpretation and changes to the constitutional customs concerning the role of the president can be indirectly compared with the decisions made by the Nazi party in Germany in 1933.
