The Czech Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sports notified the Palestinian Authority (PA) embassy in Prague of their decision to stop using educational textbooks that refer to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, according to a statement released Tuesday by the Palestinian Foreign Ministry.

Palestinian Ambassador to the Czech Republic, Khalid Al-Atrash, confirmed that the textbook used since 2011 would not be used in schools anymore unless the publishers correct the statement that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

The decision was made after the Palestinian embassy contacted Czech ministers and requested that they amend the textbooks.

According to international frameworks for a two-state solution, East Jerusalem is internationally recognized as the capital of the future Palestinian state.
