The Czech Foreign Minister, Lubomír Zaorálek and Deputy Defense Minister, Tomáš Kuchta, is to visit Iraq this week with a delegation of businesspeople to boost business deals, mainly in the defense sector.
“Negotiations about the supplies of aviation technology, the pilots' training and the armoring of helicopters are underway there,” Kuchta told LN.
The Czech Republic has long been trying to sell its redundant L-159 fighter planes, made by Aero Vodochody, to Iraq.
