Slovakia pays to train Iraqis

SLOVAKIA will contribute €40,000 to the fund for training Iraqi military specialists, Defence Minister Juraj Liška announced on his return from a meeting of NATO defence ministers in Nice, France, on February 11.

Slovakia has also offered to train the Iraqi specialists in Slovakia and to provide the technical equipment.
