Slovakia Declares It Will Move Its Embassy to Jerusalem

10

The head of the Slovak National Council, Andrej Danko, told Israel President Reuven Rivlin that Slovakia is poised to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

These are the doors President Donald Trump opened. First, America moved the embassy; in April, Czech President Milos Zeman said his country would open a consulate in the city; in May, Guatemala moved its embassy to Jerusalem; in May, Paraguay announced its intent to do the same.

What’s especially note-worthy about the Slovak announcement is that it goes against European Union policy on Jerusalem.

From the Algemeiner:

“Slovakia is on its way to relocating its embassy to Jerusalem,” Head of the Slovak National Council Andrej Danko told Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the visiting delegation of Slovak lawmakers announced the Eastern European country would open a cultural center in the Israeli capital.

The move, when it materializes, would mark a break from European Union policy on Jerusalem. Slovakia would join the Czech Republic and Bulgaria as the other European Union member states to expand their diplomatic presence in the city since US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The visiting lawmakers did not give a timeframe for when the new cultural center would be opened.

The decision, made by Slovak Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini, came after Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein called on Bratislava’s government to follow the Czech Republic in opening an honorary consulate in the city.

Edelstein thanked the Slovaks, saying, “This is a tremendous diplomatic achievement for Israel and a pleasant surprise for all of us. I am certain that when additional delegations arrive here they will understand Jerusalem is Israel’s eternal capital.”

In April Czech President Milos Zeman said his country would open a consulate and cultural center in Jerusalem. Zeman reiterated his intention to eventually transfer the Czech Embassy from Tel Aviv to the capital.

In May the Czech Republic reopened its honorary consulate in Jerusalem, after it had been shuttered since 2016 following the death of the previous honorary consul. With that the Czech Republic only recognized the western part of the city as Israel’s capital, along with the United States, Guatemala and Paraguay.

The US in May became the first country to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, following President Donald Trump’s Dec. 6 recognition of the city as Israel’s capital. The move was met with anger by Palestinians who claim east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.
