07-01-2008

Opposition MP Kateřina Konečná, of the Communist Party, wants the Czech Parliament’s lower house to pass a resolution rejecting the independence of the Serbian province of Kosovo. Ms Konečná said on Monday that even some coalition MPs are strongly opposed to the Serbian province declaring independence. Meanwhile, the deputy chief of the Chamber of Deputies’ Foreign Committee Tomáš Dub, of the coalition Civic Democrats, said that it would be impossible for the Czech Republic not to side with the European Union and the United States if they recognize an independent Kosovo.
