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".
