Topic: Czech president bans U.S ambassador from Prague Castle: media


President Milos Zeman has "closed the door" of Prague Castle to the U.S. ambassador following comments perceived as critical of the Czech's decision to attend a World War Two commemoration in Moscow, according to local media reports on Sunday. European Union leaders are boycotting the ceremony in May over Russia's role in the Ukraine conflict but Zeman -- who has frequently departed from the EU line -- has said he would attend. "I canít imagine the Czech ambassador in Washington would give advice to the American president where to travel," Zeman told news portal Parlamentni Listy. "I wonít let any ambassador have a say about my foreign travels." "Ambassador (Andrew) Schapiro has the door to the castle closed." A presidential spokesman told local media that Schapiro could still attend social events at Prague Castle, the official residence of the Czech president.
