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.

The TASR news agency reported that in 2005 Slovakia is sending two specialists to the NATO mission in Iraq. "Next year there could be five more Slovak officials," said Liška.

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