Dzurinda pre-warned of US attack on Iraq

Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda was informed of the start of war in Iraq in advance by the US ambassador, according to the daily SME.

The paper reported that US vice president Dick Cheney had attempted to call the prime minister earlier but the two had not been able to talk.

Slovakia continues to give full support to the war. Already more than 100 US aircraft have used Slovak airspace and 69 Slovak chemical defence troops are stationed in Kuwait.
