    The Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek might become the

the government could then go to Hynek Kmonicek, foreign affairs
advisor to the President Milos Zeman, the paper reported,
quoting unnamed sources.
    That swap could help Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka to make

within his Social Democratic party, the paper said.
