Iraqi diplomats to be trained in Czech

Xinhua, February 9, 2017 Adjust font size:

The Czech Republic will help Iraq train its diplomats, according to a memorandum of cooperation signed on Wednesday between the two nations.

Although Iraq has its own diplomatic schools, the Czech experience will enrich Iraq, Iraqi foreign minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari said at a press conference.

Czech foreign minister Lubomir Zaoralek expressed support for the Iraqi side on the war against IS.

The successful fight against IS depends not only Iraq itself, but also the Czech Republic and the whole Europe, Zaoralek said.

Czech has already supported Iraq in its fight against IS by sending field surgical team and ammunition to Iraq. Endit
