Czech Republic President Milos Zeman told Israel's parliament Monday that he would push to have his country's embassy moved to occupied Jerusalem, but acknowledged the decision depended on his government.Zeman is a strong backer of Israel and has long favoured moving the Czech embassy from Tel Aviv to the disputed city of Jerusalem, as U.S. President Donald Trump did in May.On Tuesday Zeman will hold talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and inaugurate a new Czech House in Jerusalem that will include tourism and trade promotion, a move Czech leaders have portrayed as a first step toward moving the embassy.
