      Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan said Bratislava is to keep its 107
      soldiers in Iraq. Most of them are there for de-mining operations.

      Iraq asked the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday to renew
      the mandate for the U.S.-led multinational force.

      According to polls, a majority of Slovaks oppose the deployment of
      the troops in Iraq, where three Slovak soldiers were killed in 2004.

      But last year, a top Slovak Army officer was put under investigation
      for accepting bribes from soldiers who actually wanted to be sent to
      Iraq.
