The new ruling coalition of five liberal parties in the Czech Republic intends to revise the concept of relations with Russia and China in its draft program, RIA Novosti reports.
This was stated during a conversation with reporters by a member of the working group on the preparation of the program Martin Dvorak, who is one of the candidates for the post of the head of the Czech Foreign Ministry in the new Cabinet.
According to him, the document under preparation emphasizes the priority of bilateral relations, first of all, with Germany, and will also declare a strategic partnership with Israel.
In addition, the program states the need to revise relations with the Russian Federation and the PRC.
Dvorak also added that the coalition intends to adopt the so-called “Magnitsky law”.
We will remind that earlier the Czech Republic’s special plenipotentiary for energy security Vaclav Bartushka called on Europe to take a tough stance on issues related to Russian gas prices.
