Prague Mayor Zdeněk Hřib announced that he will join a delegation to be led by Miloš Vystrčil, president of the Senate of the Czech Republic, on a visit to Taiwan later this month.
Hrib said in a Facebook post earlier on Tuesday evening that he appreciated cross-party cooperation when it comes to a common cause and that deepening alliances with foreign partners was a good example of such cooperation.
“I am honored that the President of the Senate, Miloš Vystrčil, invited me on his foreign trip to Taiwan,” the mayor said in the Facebook post.
This will be Hřib’s second visit to Taiwan in less than 18 months. He previously visited in March 2019.
According to Hřib, his upcoming itinerary in Taiwan will be a little different from the rest of the delegation. “I will also meet with representatives of the partner city of Taipei,” he said in the Facebook post.
Led by Hřib, a vocal supporter of Taiwan and Tibet, the Prague city government terminated its sister city agreement with Beijing in favor of Taipei last year after a dispute over the removal of Beijing’s “one China” policy clause from the agreement.
