The Czech Republic announced Wednesday that it will recognize West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, hours after President Trump's own Jerusalem declaration on behalf of the U.S.
Earlier Wednesday, Trump declared that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, but the statement out of Prague specifically cited the possibility that the ancient city could serve a dual purpose in future peace talks.
“The Czech Republic together with other EU member states, following the EU Foreign Affaires Council Conclusions, considers Jerusalem to be future capital of both states, meaning the State of Israel and the future State of Palestine," the Czech Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The ministry made clear that it only recognized the western half of Jerusalem to be Israel's capital, the borders of the city before Israel seized control of the eastern half in the Six-Day War of 1967.

While the Czech Republic broke with some other European Union members who do not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, it said it would only consider moving its embassy there after "negotiations with key partners."
