In the long term, the presence of a high-ranking diplomatic representative in Russia is important, the Czech President emphasized Peter Pavel during a press conference at the headquarters of the Security and Information Service.

He acknowledged the need to appoint a Czech ambassador in Moscow, but noted that suitable conditions must exist for this to happen.

Pavel understands the importance of diplomatic representation at the ambassadorial level in Russia, but at the moment the situation may be unfavorable for such a step. However, the process of appointing a new ambassador will take a long time, so it is advisable to start preparing for this now. When the situation becomes more favorable, the appointment of an ambassador can be quickly implemented.

In the absence of a permanent ambassador, the diplomatic mission of the Czech Republic in Moscow is headed by a minister-counselor Jiri Chistetsky. Prime Minister Petr Fiala and the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Jan Lipavsky have repeatedly spoken out in favor of sending a new ambassador to Russia. However, President Pavel is showing some caution in this matter, weighing all possible risks and benefits.
