The Iraqi Ambassador to Slovakia, Matheel Dhayif Majeed Al-Sabtim, told Defence Minister Ľubomír Galko on October 10 that Iraq would like to intensify its cooperation with Slovakia in the defence area, the TASR newswire was told by Danka Capáková of the ministry’s press department.
According to Al-Sabtim, Iraq is particularly interested in trainings for personnel assigned to handle the Božena mine clearing system that is made in Krupina in Banská Bystrica Region. Iraq owns 29 of the units but the ambassador said “they are currently not being used to their full potential, which is a shame. We think that, as a supplying country, Slovakia should have a main say in this matter".
