Kolin - The two Czech women who were kidnapped in Pakistan in the spring are now somewhere between Pakistan and Afghanistan and the Czech Republic is negotiating about their release, President Milos Zeman said in reply to a student´s question today.
He would not elaborate saying he does not want to threaten the two women, aged 24, who were kidnapped in Pakistan when crossing it on their way from Iran to India last March.
Zeman only said he was in written contact with his Pakistani counterpart.
No one has probably publicly claimed responsibility for the kidnapping.
In June a video, in which the two girls were pleading for the release of Pakistani neurologist Aafia Siddiqui imprisoned in the United States, appeared on the Internet.
In the 100-second video, allegedly made in mid-April, the Czechs claimed that they are healthy, but that their lives are in danger.
Zeman started a three-day tour of Central Bohemia on Monday, the last region he visits ahead of the October 25-26 early general election.
