Statement of the Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka on relations with Saudi Arabia

Information presented in the press are inaccurate and generally fail to describe the current state of affairs between the Czech Republic and Saudi Arabia. Czech Republic recorded a dramatic increase in trade with Saudi Arabia last year, by more than 40 per cent in comparison with 2013 and this trend continues. Saudi Arabia is an important trade partner for the Czech Republic in this region and the Czech government strives to support creation of new opportunities for our exporters by efficient economic diplomacy with our partner. We therefore strive to look into the future in relations with Saudi Arabia and we make every effort to support our mutual relations especially in area of economic cooperation.

Bohuslav Sobotka, Czech Prime Minister
