PRIME MINISTER Mikuláš Dzurinda received a phone call from US president George Bush February 25, who said he appreciated Slovakia's firm stance in support of US-led action in Iraq.
In a phone call that lasted about 12 minutes, Bush said "the US will never forget the Slovak attitude".
On February 26, a unit of military chemical engineers left Slovakia for a base in Kuwait, from where it will be able to assist any military action against Iraq. The unit, composed of 70 Slovak soldiers, is expected to be based in Kuwait's Doha military camp.
