Czechs Leave With Mates

April 21, 2009

The Czech Republic, having seen Ahmadinejad take the floor yesterday, has had enough of the Durban Review Conference.

This is significant, at the Czech Republic holds the EU Presidency, and had previously suggested it would therefore continue to participate as long as other European countries did. This is a rare and total splintering of the European consensus at the UN, especially in Geneva. Five member states, including the Presidency, have left their counterparts behind.
