Czech ambassador to Zambia on renewing old contacts and forging new ties

When the Czech Republic re-opened its embassy in Zambia last year after a
twenty-five-year break, Radek Rubeš handed over his credentials to
President Edgar Lungu and set about re-establishing the Czech presence in
Lusaka. When I met with him in Prague this week, I asked about the
possibilities opening up and how hard it is to build on the Czechoslovak
trademark that still rings a bell in Zambia.
