Proposal for Iraqi police training ready

THE SLOVAK military police have drafted a proposal for the training of Iraqi military police officers in Slovakia, František Zemko, head of the military police, told the news wire SITA.

The proposal outlines courses lasting two to three months for approximately 20 Iraqis in the training centre in Liptovský Mikuláš in northern Slovakia.

Training would most likely start at the beginning of next year. Zemko stressed that the proposal was not final and had been submitted to Defence Minister Juraj Liška without consulting Milan Cerovský, the chief of staff of the Slovak Army.

Zemko refused to give details about the estimated cost of the project. This will be clearer once the proposal is approved, he said.

The possibility of experts training Iraqi military police was discussed at the NATO summit in Istanbul in June.
