The Czech Republic Appoints First-Time Ambassador to Kosovo

Fifteen years after the recognition of Kosovo’s independence, the Czech Republic is appointing an ambassador to Kosovo for the first time.

Namely, Bohumil Mazánek, a career diplomat, former ambassador to Lithuania, consul general in Shanghai and Katowice, and chargé d’affaires in Thailand will be the first Czech ambassador to Kosovo.

The announcement was made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic in a press release.

The President of the Czech Republic, Petr Pavel, at the proposal of the Government, has appointed 26 new ambassadors of the Czech Republic to the world, including Bohumil Mazánek in Kosovo, announced the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.

“The Ministry wants diplomatic relations with Kosovo to be at the highest level because it is necessary to correct the absurd issue that the Czech Republic recognizes the independence of Kosovo, has an embassy in the country but does not have an ambassador”, said the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, Daniel Drake.

Until now, the Czech Republic only had a charge d’affaires at its embassy in Kosovo, because presidents Vaclav Klaus and then Miloš Zeman were opponents of the decision of the government of the then prime minister, Mirek Topolanek, in May 2008 to recognize the independence of Kosovo.
