Foreign Minister denies intention to send troops to Iraq

Foreign Minister Dimitrij Rupel told the daily Večer that the government – despite Prime Minister Janez Janša’s recent comments – is not considering sending Slovene troops to Iraq.
"There is no point in speaking about the sending of our troops to Iraq; we're not thinking about that," Rupel told the paper. He added that Slovenia, nevertheless, is trying to maintain good relations with the United States [STA / 29.01.05 / Slovenia not thinking of sending troops to Iraq, says foreign minister].
