On 4 March, a member of the Russian delegation was refused entry to the Czech Republic "for security reasons". The member flew in to attend a meeting of the intergovernmental commission, ONA reports citing Sputnik.
Moscow will respond to the actions of the Czech authorities after they refused to allow a Russian Foreign Ministry official to enter the country, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
"Of course, such confrontational attacks [the refusal of a Russian diplomat to enter the Czech Republic] will not remain without an adequate response from our side. Responsibility for the likely negative consequences of this policy in relation to Russia rests entirely with the initiators of this campaign," Zakharova said.
