President Zeman’s chancellor, Vratislav Mynář, will not be accompanying the Czech head of state to the NATO summit in Great Britain next week, the ctk news agency reports. The chancellor said he had another important appointment on his agenda, but there has been speculation that he would not be able to attend the NATO meeting due to the fact that he lacks security clearance. The fact that someone so close to the head of state has not received security clearance has come under fire from many sides, but President Zeman has so far tolerated the situation on the chancellor’s assurance that he requested security clearance last December and the National Security Office had so far failed to process his request.
