Soldiers to clear Iraq of mines

THE CABINET has decided to send 85 soldiers to Iraq to assist in mine clearance and the elimination of explosive systems in the post-war country.

The decision still needs to be approved by parliament. If MPs agree, Slovak military engineers will leave for Iraq in midsummer this year.

It is estimated that the expedition will cost about Sk300 million (€7.1 million).
