Czech lower house approves EU's Lisbon treaty
The lower house of the Czech parliament approved the European Union's Lisbon treaty on Wednesday, but not a final step toward ratification in the central European country.

The lower house voted 125 to 61 to adopt the document which aims to reform the EU's institutions.

The treaty must still be ratified in the upper house, the Senate, where it may sit for weeks or even months as many right-wing Senators demand that the country first ratifies a plan to host a U.S. missile defence shield base.
