Czech leader, US ambassador clash over Moscow visit

Czech President Milos Zeman during a press conference in Prague on January 10, 2014Czech President Milos Zeman and the US ambassador to Prague have clashed over the leader’s plan to travel to Moscow for a World War II victory anniversary, an event largely snubbed by Western leaders. In a TV interview last week, US ambassador Andrew Schapiro questioned the staunchly pro-Russian Zeman’s wish to be “probably the only EU head of state” to attend the May 9 parade on Moscow’s Red Square marking the 70th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany. He added, however, that it was not up to him to tell the Czech president what to do. Zeman is one of a handful of world leaders set to attend the event ignored by most Western leaders amid tensions over Russia’s role in Ukraine.
