Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek has pointed out in an interview how Czech Republic should also use the name Czechia, apart from the usual name, to define itself abroad.
According to the Foreign Minister, the matter will be discussed with officials of the government and he is really confident everyone will approve the decision, scheduled for thursday.
If everything will be approved, then awill be set a request to the United Nation to accept the name.
Even if it’s not really common and widely popular yet, even President Milos Zeman is also a big supporter of the name shortening: he’s been using Czechia in a lot of public occasion, since it has a better sound and it’s short.
Using Czechia would also be a benefit for touristical and commercial purposes.
