Czech Republic–France relations


Czech Republic

Czech Republic–France refers to the current and historical relationship between the Czech Republic and France. The first diplomatic contacts between the two countries date back to the Middle Ages.

France was the first country to recognize Czechoslovakia on 28 October 1918.[1] France supported the signing of the Little Entente and consequently signed the Treaty of Alliance and Friendship between France and Czechoslovakia on 25 January 1924.[2]

The Czech Republic has an embassy in Paris and four honorary consulates (in Lille, Lyon, Nancy, and Nantes).[3] France has an embassy in Prague.[4]

Both countries are full members of NATO and of the European Union. Since 1999, Czech Republic is also an observer in the Francophonie.[5]
