Unilateral recognition of Palestine as a state is non-effective because there will be no consensus between Palestine and Israel, Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek told a breakfast meeting of The Israel Council on Foreign Relations at the King David Hotel, Jerusalem on Wednesday.
Zaoralek is in the region to meet with Israeli and Palestinian officials and is due to travel to Ramallah on Thursday.
It is uncertain whether he will receive as welcome a reception there as he has received in Israel as the Czech Republic was the only European country to vote against the Palestinian Authority’s unilateral attempt to attain statehood at the United Nations.
Zaoralek described relations between the Czech Republic and Israel as “excellent” adding that he hoped that they will remain that way.
