President Clinton has nominated Mr. Indyk to return to his former post as ambassador to Israel, where he first served from 1995 to 1997.

"The people of the United States and the Czech and Slovak republics have maintained a special relationship based on shared democratic values."

The resolution, sponsored by Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Jesse Helms, North Carolina Republican, and Joseph R. Biden, Delaware Democrat, also urged the European Union to admit both countries as new members. …
