Slovak sappers to go to Afghanistan

IF SLOVAKIA decides to reinforce its military presence in the NATO International Security Assistance Forces (ISAF) in Afghanistan, the additional troops will likely be army engineers (sappers) to aid in construction, the Pravda daily wrote.

During his recent meeting with NATO representatives in Brussels, Slovak Defence Minister František Kašický confirmed Slovakia's intention to increase its contingent of sappers in Afghanistan. The final decision on numbers and the natures of the troops will be made within the next two months.

Slovakia was also supposed to provide military helicopters for the ISAF mission, but decided that this would cost too much.
