A spokesman for the new Czech EU presidency on Sunday apologised after describing Israel’s ground assault in Gaza as “more defensive than offensive”. The apology came after Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg described the original comments as “a very serious mistake”. Libya’s Kadhafi Foundation had warned it would press Tripoli to cut ties with Prague unless the Czech official made a formal apology.
