Czech President Vaclav Klaus met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu here Friday as the latter wound up his two-day visit.

Netanyahu left the capital after his meeting with Klaus amid strict security measures that prevailed throughout his visit to Prague.

On Thursday, Netanyahu discussed bilateral cooperation in the economic, military and armament industry sectors with his Czech counterpart, Petr Necas.

It is the first visit by an Israeli prime minister to the Czech Republic since the state of Israel was established in 1948.

The Czech Republic, one of Israel's closest allies in the European Union (EU), seeks a peaceful solution to the Middle East conflict. When chairing the rotating EU presidency in 2009, the Czech Republic advocated a closer relationship between the EU and Israel.
