PM to Afghanistan

SHORTLY before Christmas, the Slovak PM Mikuláš Dzurinda will see the nation's unit in Afghanistan to thank the military engineers for their work in the post-war area.

The Slovak daily Pravda wrote on December 13 that a source close to the cabinet office said Dzurinda would bring small presents to the soldiers and a traditional Christmas cabbage soup would be served.
