Embassy of Mexico in Prague

Mexico established diplomatic relations with then Czechoslovakia in 1922; four years after the country proclaimed its independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Diplomatic relations between the two nations were interrupted in April 1939 after the invasion from Germany in the country, however, the exiled government in London maintained relations with Mexico. In 1942, diplomatic relations were fully restored between the two nations and in 1959, embassies were established in each other's capitals, respectively.[3] In December 1992, Czechoslovakia was split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Mexico established diplomatic relations with the Czech Republic on 1 January 1993.

On 22 May 2012, Mexico and the Czech Republic celebrated 90 years of the establishment of diplomatic relations.[4]
