Czech President bans US Ambassador after American diplomat suggested no “European” leader visit Moscow for WW2 ceremony

Another day, another bonehead display of diplomacy from another bonehead US Ambassador.

The money line from Czech President Milos Zeman….

“I cannot even imagine that a Czech ambassador in Washington could give advice to the U.S. president where he should or should not go. I will not have any ambassador to meddle with the programme of my foreign visit.”

Czech President Milos Zeman said on Sunday Prague Castle the official residence and office of the Czech president/ will be closed to U.S. Ambassador Andre Schapiro who voiced critical remarks about Zeman’s plans to take part in V-Day celebrations in Moscow.

“Prague Castle’s door is closed to Ambassador Schapiro,” the Czech leader told the parliamentary electronic publication parlamentnilisty.cz. “I cannot even imagine that a Czech ambassador in Washington could give advice to the U.S. president where he should or should not go. I will not have any ambassador to meddle with the programme of my foreign visit.”

Schapiro told the Czech television several days ago that Zeman’s presence at the V-Day celebrations in Moscow would discredit the West’s position on Ukraine. The U.S. diplomat said that participation of a European Union country leader in the Moscow celebration was a shortsighted decision.
