According to Zeman, his meeting with Trump is scheduled to take place in April, the meeting with the Chinese leader will take place in May, while the meeting with Putin is expected to take place in November.

“I have already received several proposals to organize the meeting between Trump, Putin, and, possibly, the Chinese president. I modestly answered that the Czech Republic was not a center of peace and all I can do is to say to these presidents during personal meetings with them that ‘Prague is a beautiful city and you can use the Lany castle [presidential residence],” Zeman said.

In December 2016, Trump held a phone conversation with Zeman and invited him to visit the United States.
